Thanks to you, our students have the tools they need to reach their full potential and our artists are able to create unforgettable experiences for audiences in Merkin Hall and around our community. We see this magic every day throughout the Abraham Goodman House – in ways large and small. The outcomes you will see in this year’s annual Impact Report are simply remarkable. And they are made possible by your generous support.
We especially want to thank Elaine and Henry Kaufman, whose recent $5 million gift launched the Kaufman Family Challenge: a campaign to double the Center’s endowment to $20 million. Thanks to their generosity – and that of many others – we have made significant progress toward achieving this goal. Elaine and Henry’s leadership has afforded us an opportunity to dream big, so that we may continue to nurture musicians and changemakers for generations to come. Ultimately, we seek to make Kaufman Music Center an artistic home for students, artists, and audience members of all ages, free from financial barriers.
Thank you for helping us change lives, launch careers, and connect and inspire people through the arts each year.
Chair, Board of Trustees
