Four Reasons to Support the 12.14 Foundation

An enduring remembrance

1 A Create a landmark Performing Arts Center of historical significance designed by a team of world-class professionals. A unique, multi-purpose, facility that attracts world-class performers. A building representing our feelings and memories that will also be a beacon of hope for the future.


An Academy of the Arts

Each discipline will be supported by dedicated professionals, and draw upon the talents of leaders from the Newtown area, from New York City, and from around the world.


A stage for discussion

3Provide a local, national, and international stage for discussion of issues affecting our nation’s culture, technology, entertainment, and social progress in an objective, apolitical format. The Centre will incorporate advanced multi-media capabilities to extend our reach to a worldwide audience.


A global influence

4By nurturing children’s talents and improving their creative abilities, we can help them overcome great tragedy and build a brighter future. The Performing Arts Centre will be a vehicle through which we inspire each other, our community, and the world to overcome horrible loss by responding with positive action.
