REST OF SEASON TBA SOON
This season is made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with funds from the Westchester County Government
ArtsWestchester Community Service Award
Established in 1965 as the Council for the Arts in Westchester, we are New York State’s largest private, not-for-profit service organization, working to ensure the availability and accessibility of the arts for all of the county’s residents. In 1975, we were named by Westchester County government as the County’s designated arts council and we became one of several united arts funds in the country, providing grants and technical support to cultural organizations and artist residencies in the community.
ArtsWestchester gave the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra an award for Community Service in 2012.
Westchester Community Foundation
THE WESTCHESTER COMMUNITY FOUNDATION’S (WCF) http://www.wcf-ny.org mission is to connect generous people to the causes they care about and invest in transformative ideas and organizations to improve lives and strengthen our community. WCF is a division of the New York City Community Trust, one of the largest community foundations in the country with assets of approximately $2.6 billion.
The Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra has been one of the jewels of the City of Yonkers and Westchester
County since 1962. The orchestra provides free classical music concerts to the community and operates through grants and generous contributions of its friends. We are a 501c3 not for profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible.
We thank the PROBONO Partnership for matching FAOS/YPO with volunteer lawyers who helped us revise our ByLaws and resolve other legal issues. The Partnership also provide workshops which address many of the important legal issues faced by nonprofits.
Thomas & Agnes Carvel Foundation
We want to thank the Thomas & Agnes Carvel Foundation, Mayor Mike Spano, the City of Yonkers and the Yonkers Dep’t of Parks, Recreation and Conservation for their support.
