Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) was founded in 1987, and its sister school, California School of the Arts – San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV), was founded in 2017. What started as one small after-school arts program has now grown into two of the premier arts schools in the nation. Located in Southern California, OCSA and CSArtsSGV provide arts and academic education to students in grades 7-12, through a combined total of thirty-three specialized programs focusing on performing arts, visual arts, literary arts, culinary arts, and more.

Full Case Study


Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) and its sister school, California School of the Arts – San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV), recognized they needed to streamline their funding process.

They needed a platform that would support online forms and websites for two schools with thirty-three arts programs and foundations for each school.


Part of OCSA and CSArts-SGV’s solution was finding DonorPerfect, as their robust and comprehensive CRM. They realized they needed more advanced forms than DonorPerfect offered. That’s when DonorPerfect suggested Qgiv’s fundraising platform as the complementary technology solution they needed.


Working together, DonorPerfect and Qgiv helped solve the schools’ unique fundraising needs by producing creative solutions that helped them achieve their goals using existing donation form functionality, a custom DonorPerfect integration, and a few custom development pieces.
