The SoFA Foundation became its own ofﬁcial legal entity in the fall of 2016 with the blessing and knowledge of HCS on how we could best work and serve local youth together. The SoFA program accepted its ﬁrst class of students in the fall of 2017. The two entities work separately but on parallel planes. The SoFA Foundation seeks not only to support and raise the bar of the arts for SoFA students but the full contingent of students in the Henderson County School system.
The ﬁrst full SoFA Foundation Board was developed in the summer of 2017 after receiving its own 501(c)3 Status. A great deal of time was spent by the members of that initial board to develop various legal documents, hone their mission statement, create a strategic plan and establish all fundamental checks and balances to operate transparently and solely for the support of forwarding arts education in Henderson County.
The SoFA Foundation exists to energize, educate, and create funding for arts education and career development.
The SoFA Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable and volunteer support of all the arts within Henderson County Schools, especially Henderson County High.
