The goal of the Rau for Art Teacher’s Assistance Fund is to help high school art educators in the New Orleans area to have more available resources to creatively enrich their students. Individual grant proposals were submitted for review to the foundation’s website for a chance to win up to $2,500 for each school. 

The Rau for Art Foundation was founded by Bill Rau in commemoration of M.S. Rau Antiques’ 2012 Centennial. This program, along with the foundation’s yearly student Scholarship Competition, allows the RFA to have a greater impact on arts education in Greater New Orleans, benefiting both students and their schools. Employees of M.S. Rau Antiques comprise the RFA, contributing their time and professional skills to help these students reach their dreams.
