Funding the center’s activities
Most of the activities at Keshet Eilon Music Center today are funded by donations from foundations, businesses, government ministries and private donors. The non-profit organization’s directorate scrupulously maintains a balanced budget that admits of no exceptions. However, although this income covers routine running costs, it cannot meet the needs of development in the short term – and even less so in the long term.
The Center copes with the paucity of resources by engaging in independent fundraising: it organizes benefit concerts in halls and private homes both in Israel and abroad, from which all profits go directly to its further development. Many of Keshet Eilon’s friends and supporters have already opened their homes for this purpose, and concerts have been held in New York, London, Berlin, Geneva, Paris, Washington, Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami, as well as in major cities in Israel and a number of venues in Galilee. The goal is to create a ubiquitous Friends of Keshet Eilon infrastructure that will operate constantly hand in hand with Keshet Eilon in the voluntary spirit that characterizes all its activities. Inspired by the example of staff members such as Vadim Gluzman, Ani Schnarch, Hagai Shaham and Angela Yoffe, all Keshet Eilon violin course graduates appear at these concerts free of charge.
