Appel Farm has a strong commitment to arts education for people of all ages, which it achieves through outstanding arts classes and professional development for teachers. It also presents music that derives from a foundation of social awareness, as well as multicultural traditions. Indeed, the Center's founders regarded the arts not only as a vehicle for self expression, but as a means and a catalyst to create community, influence social change by teaching young people about the importance of participating in the democratic process, and embracing the right to the free expression of ideas. In conjunction with this core ideology, the goals of Appel Farm are to create a warm, vibrant, supportive environment for creativity, and a place where people are accepted for who they are - a place of tolerance and respect.

Appel Farm is an amazing organization. I have volunteered for the annual music festival a number of times. The organization has a knack for bringing in some truly talented musicians - I've yet to see an act at this festival that I didn't walk away loving. I have also donated to Appel Farm's programs in the past. As an educator, I wish there were more organizations out there that worked to help young students realize their artistic and creative skills in the way that Appel Farm does.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help tons of young students realize their artistic and creative talents!
