The D'Addario Foundation first named The D'Addario Foundation for the Performing Arts was established in 1981 as a not-for-profit corporate foundation of D'Addario and Company. Its main purpose was to support the D'Addario Performance Series created in 1979 by the founders of D'Addario and Company to provide an outlet for young classical guitarists to showcase their talents. Artists such as Benjamin Verdery, Michael Newman, and Paco Pena were provided performance debut opportunities in New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Milwaukee through the Performance Series.
The D'Addario Performance Series took place over a 12 year period and was funded, promoted and organized solely by D'Addario and Company and the D'Addario Foundation for the Performing Arts. After many years of hosting these concerts, the D'Addario Foundation for the Performing Arts decided to take a more philanthropic approach and began to donate funds to support music education programs in many different forms. The foundation mission has evolved over time but the primary focus is to support community based music education programs that bring music to the under-served. The D'Addario Foundation is not only deeply committed to music education but to the belief that mentoring and building communities through music can positively affect social change.
Today, in addition to honoring our mission by continuing to support music education-related organizations, the D'Addario Foundation has re-established the D'Addario Performance Series. The winners of some of the top classical guitar competitions in the world once again will be provided unforgettable performance opportunities. The reincarnation of the Performance Series is a tribute to the D'Addario family's commitment to giving back and staying engaged with the artistic community.
