Code of Ethics

“I believe arts education in music, theater, dance, and the visual arts is one of the most creative ways we have to find the gold that is buried just beneath the surface. They (children) have an enthusiasm for life a spark of creativity, and vivid imaginations that need training – training that prepares them to become confident young men and women.”


                                                                       – Richard W. Riley, Former US Secretary of Education

Our Mission

Our mission is to support the Auburn Fine Arts Department (AFAD) so that students may have enhanced experiences above the basic level of which the annual district budget can reasonably provide. 


F.A.M.E. members shall volunteer, fundraise, or solicit donations at community events to provide supplemental financial support to AFAD, and students participating in related AFAD events and programming.
