The Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation have been supporting the students of the Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program since 1968; over 53 years! With community performances and concerts, informative presentations, and aiding those less fortunate, the Associates is always there for the town of Idyllwild and the surrounding mountain communities.
What we do is driven by our membership. As a member, your voice is heard. 100% of our membership dues is donated to Idyllwild Arts and various organizations in our communities. In the early days of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Associates donated funds to help the Mountain Communities COVID-19 mutual Aid Food Program get off the ground. In past years we have supported the HELP Center with Food Drives and financial support. After the Cranston Fire, the Associates recognized our first responders by making a needed and appreciated gift to various organizations. Yes, we still support the students at Idyllwild Arts with gifts of nearly $2.5 million dollars over the last 53 years.
How do we do it? Our members do it! Our members pay their annual dues, they plan and attend our special events, and some invite new members. You can join the Associates and make a difference. Annual memberships are still, after 53 years, just $100. Membership does make a difference in our community and in the life of a student at Idyllwild Arts.
