HSPVA Friends is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides the financial resources and program support HISD's Kinder High School for the Performing and Visual Arts needs in order to deliver a cutting-edge curriculum to students from all walks of life. As a result, Houston students have access to one of the finest tuition-free arts educations in the country.

With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the HSPVA Friends staff provides unique support structures for the school's six art areas: Creative Writing, Dance, Instrumental Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, and Vocal Music. Since 1978, HSPVA Friends has received millions of dollars in generous support from foundations, corporations, and individuals for projects that encourage excellence in education and the arts. 

We pride ourselves in collaborating with community leaders, artists, and parents to fill the gap between public funding and the essential building blocks of a quality  arts education.
