Thank you to all who supported Boston Arts Academy Foundation during BAA Honors 2022, a celebration of BAA's 25 years of impact in BAA's new, cutting-edge performing arts building.

BAA Honors is October 8!

BAA Honors is Boston Arts Academy Foundation's signature annual event and largest single source of funding for Boston Arts Academy.

Thanks to all who joined us on Saturday, October 8, 2022 to celebrate 25 years of transformative arts education and raise critical funds to ensure Boston Arts Academy continues to offer educational equity and life-changing opportunities for generations to come!

We are grateful to everyone who attended, bid on the auctions, purchased raffle tickets, sponsored, and advertised in our program book. With your support, we have raised $2.3 million!

BAA Foundation hasn't hosted an event of this magnitude in three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The generosity that came together in one building was immense, the company unbeatable, and the celebration breathtaking. To raise seven figures for our deserving students is incredible, and our gratitude is boundless. Further, to see the rich diversity of our BAA student body reflected in the faces of our BAA Honors leadership, honorees, and guests is deeply meaningful. 

There are so many of you who put your heART into BAA Honors 2022, and we look forward to thanking each of you personally.
