In September we had the pleasure of honoring our Founder and all-around wonderful person, Louise Hirschfeld Cullman in a special event at the National Arts Club. The starry evening was a terrific way to salute Louise and all she has accomplished for the Foundation and beyond, and it also proved to a very successful fundraiser, with proceeds nearly triple what was expected. We have now made it easier for anyone to support the Hirschfeld Foundation education program and its mission by setting up a donation page directly on our website. We are pleased that our donors have come from all areas, and all amounts. We are honored to have so much support from people, businesses, and foundations this year. We encourage you to support the efforts of the non-profit Al Hirschfeld Foundation.
2019 will bring the unique Hirschfeld Art Education curriculum to audiences outside of New York City for the first time in ten years. We have been raising funds to bring the free arts education program to underserved schools around the country. Our pilot project is scheduled to begin in September 2019 in Syracuse, New York and we will keep you up to date on the progress.
