"The Laurel Fund for the performing arts was established with three goals in mind: first, to promote all the performing arts and make each accessible to all segments of our community; second, to assist, encourage and nurture young artists particularly from diverse communities in our city; and third, to instill in these young artists the spirit of giving back to their community. Young artists who receive help from The Laurel Fund for the performing arts either with scholarships to study in one of the arts institutions in our city or with a private teacher or coach will be asked to make a commitment to perform with an ensemble organized by the Laurel Fund, at senior citizens homes, community centers, hospitals and other such venues. In addition to performing, these young artists will also learn to talk about their chosen art form, with the hope that they become not just good performers, but good communicators as well who will experience and realize the value of giving back to their community."
