Nearly 100 years ago the Profant family helped launch CAMA, Music Academy of the West, and Old Spanish Days. The next generations created a charitable organization to assist artists of all ages. Now celebrating its 15th year as a non-profit 501c3 organization, the Profant Foundation for the Arts has given hundreds of scholarships to local developing artists of all ages. Recipients have used the funds in a variety of ways: to publish a book, sing in Europe, intern as a dancer in New York, complete a solo art exhibit, attend a writer’s conference, and much, much more. Over the years the organization has also offered several exhibits and performances for arts education. These are made possible by community support, and proceeds from the Fiesta Finale Gala.
