Scholarships Have Class
Board members of the Springfield Art Guild were inspired by the Ruthanne G. Lodato Music Scholarship which honored the life of the much loved piano instructor. Friends and Family made contributions to send children in need to FCPA offered music classes. Scholarships for piano lessons were awarded to more than a dozen children to date thanks to Lodato memorial gifts!
SAG’s generous contribution of $1,000 will similarly provide scholarships for income-eligible individuals to experience visual or fine arts classes. This partnership with FCPF helps further SAG’s mission of serving the community’s interest in fine “visual” arts, fine crafts and photography.
More than 55 fine arts classes are listed quarterly in Parktakes Magazine. The Park Authority and Foundation are committed to helping all Fairfax County residents improve their lives. Philanthropic support of donors such as SAG help us to reach more people each year.
