I am proud to say that I've had a connection with HARC for twenty years now. I have been a donor and a Board Member and I feel I have dealt with highly talented and ethical people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a result of this foundation I have witnessed the annual competitors in different categories of the creative arts receive financial help in order to continue their work. I have also seen awards given to students who are training for art therapy, so this is a two-fold foundation.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would try to get more people involved by helping the spread the word via publicity.

Leadership at The Harc Foundation is totally committed to helping discover, nurture and promote emrging creative artists across all creative fields such as painting, sculpture, dance, drama, music composition and video/mult- media disciplines. After 20 years as Board Chairman, I am proud of the Emerging Artists we have honored as well as the CAT Award winners for whom we have provided scholarships to help them continue their graduate work in Creative Arts Therapy for abused and neglected children.

For 20 years, The Harc Foundation has applied 100% of all donations and funds to the HARC and CAT Awards and the events promoting these wionners. At no time does the Foundation use any funds for administrative purposes.

I have been proud to be a part of HARC's first 20 years and hope there are others out there who care enough about the art scene in America to become involved as a "patrion", donor or volunteer for the next 20 years.

Best wishes,

David N. Marchese
Chairman & CEO

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I am doing just that: to resign my position so young, new blood can join the Board and make their contributions to their community and society at large.
