The Straz Center’s community partnership program forges vital alliances between our arts education resources and community organizations. We work with each organization to customize and design a curriculum to specifically address the needs and best benefits for those served by their organization, school, agency or after-school program. We are with our community partners on our stages, in our classrooms and in the community.
Established over 60 years ago by businessman and philanthropist Fred K. Conn, the Conn Memorial Foundation seeks to continue the founder's legacy of compassion and giving to those in need in our community. The Foundation focuses on the most vulnerable of our citizens, our children. Mr. Conn believed in lifting people up and providing for basic needs and necessities, but he also believed in investing in the future of individuals through education and the community by building institutions that would serve those individuals. We are proud to continue this rich and caring legacy.
