MGM Music Hall at Fenway | 2 Lansdowne Street, Boston, MA

BAA Foundation's signature annual event and largest fundraiser of the year for Boston's ONLY public arts high school, Boston Arts Academy.



About Honors 2024

Honors is BAA Foundation’s signature annual event and largest single source of unrestricted funding each year for Boston Arts Academy, with a $2.5M fundraising goal.

Inspired by the Kennedy Center Honors, BAAF Honors recognizes leaders in the school’s art majors—Dance, Fashion Design & Technology, Music, Television & Film, and Visual Arts, as well as Honors in Civic Responsibility.

All funding will directly support public arts education and life-changing opportunities for Boston Arts Academy’s students for generations to come.

This year's event will be a monumental celebration—an evening of student performances, a live and silent auction, an awards program, special guest appearances, dinner, dancing, and more—in one of the best entertainment venues in our beautiful city.

Make a Bigger Impact: Join The Leadership Circle

Leadership Circle members are change makers and help BAA Foundation raise necessary funds to provide life-changing opportunities for Boston's next generation of artists, scholars, and global citizens. The group plays a key role in helping BAA Foundation achieve an ambitious $2.5 million BAA Honors goal. Each member is asked to help fundraise and secure donations totaling $10,000, and/or make their own contribution toward their give/get. This can be achieved through sponsorships, ticket sales, program advertising, live auction items, and more. 

By joining this extraordinary group of volunteers, Leadership Circle members help BAA Foundation in its efforts to ensure that the school has the resources to fund its arts, STEAM (STEM + arts) and Health & Wellness resources and programming that are so important to BAA’s 500+ growing student body.
