Van Wezel Foundation
Embrace Our Mission
Many people may not realize that the Van Wezel Foundation operates as a partner, but independently, of the city owned and operated Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Established in 1987, the Foundation is a charitable non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has directed millions of dollars in support of the Hall's capital improvements, programs and ongoing educational efforts.
The mission of the Van Wezel Foundation is to enrich the lives of members of the Gulf Coast Community, with an emphasis on children, through the performing arts while supporting the needs of the Van Wezel - the region's premier performing arts hall.
