Grandma Adele and me, 2015.

Welcome to the Adele Katz Endowment for the Arts!

 

Who was Adele Katz?

     Born April 21st, 1921 she was an avid music and art lover. She was also an artist, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was well known in her Brooklyn neighborhood for taking groups of kids to theater productions, concerts and other artistic events who would never have been able to otherwise attend. She organized these activities because she believed that the arts and culture were a necessary element of education of which everyone should be a part.

     I have created this memorial fund in her honor and structured it so your one-time gift will go on to create opportunities for many years to come and allow deserving applicants from every avenue of the artistic community to continue their work. Also we DO NOT take ANY compensation from the fund, everything stays in the portfolio or is distributed to the community.

What are we up to right now? We are helping create a world-class figure skating school in Albuquerque to bring opportunities for ice dreams to the desert of NM.

 

Among Studio Glide's three international level figure skating coaches, they are collectively building a figure skating school unlike anything Albuquerque has had before. They are very excited share their love of the sport with children in hopes to motivate and cultivate a unique sporting experience unlike all others where self expression and confidence are the priority in their development.

This aligns with the mission of the endowment because it creates a space where children will experience something that they may not have been otherwise able in a place one would never expect.
