• In 1976, the school created a private, non-profit support organization—the Alabama School of Fine Arts Foundation—to enlist private sector assistance to address school needs. The school’s Board of Trustees appoints members to the Foundation’s Board of Directors, which approves foundation policy.  A Director of Development directs foundation operations and reports to the ASFA president.
