The President's Fund for Excellence

For the past 17 years, Harding Fine Arts Academy has been a shining example of Benjamin Franklin’s philosophy that “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” This resonates with me personally as I continuously strive to learn something new each and every day. At Harding Fine Arts Academy, we strongly believe that education’s impact on communities truly knows no bounds.

The Academy has achieved many great things this past year – we hired a new superintendent, developed a comprehensive 5-year strategic plan, increased enrollment by 8%, ranked in the Top 10 public high schools in Oklahoma for the 10th consecutive year, and invested over $1 million in our curriculum.

I cannot wait to share the great things planned for the year ahead as progress unfolds!

We are incredibly grateful for the unwavering commitment of so many of our alumni and friends. Please help us keep this important momentum by contributing to this year’s President’s Fund for Excellence. With your support, we will surpass our $35,000 goal in no time!

Donations to the President’s Fund support the operations of Harding Fine Arts Academy Foundation. This includes payroll for essential fundraising staff, masterclasses/workshops for students with visiting artists, and general business expenses. These unrestricted donations allow us to pursue our mission of supporting the Academy’s.

Donors like you make it possible to increase the number of strong academic and artistic programs available to more students. With your help, we can achieve this goal while remaining true to our core values – that both knowledge and character matter.

With the Firehawk spirit in all of us, I hope you will consider making a tax-deductible donation to Harding Fine Arts Academy Foundation today!

With sincere gratitude,

Joy Reed Belt
