Entrepreneur Hall of Famer Answers Challenge Grant Call
NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale is a dynamic community resource that marks the center point of the South Florida art coast from Miami to the Palm Beaches. The ability to maximize its potential, however, depends upon philanthropic support of general operating as well as programming expenses.
To provide an incentive for supporting the “Art at the Core” priority, the David and Francie Horvitz Foundation made a $1 million challenge grant that matches all new gifts to the museum of $10,000 - $50,000 for the next three years.
Recent Huizenga College Entrepreneur Hall of Fame inductee, Steven W. Hudson, answered the call.
“The Hudson Family Foundation is honored to join Fran and David in supporting the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale,” said Holly Bodenweber, president of the Hudson Family Foundation and Steve’s sister. “The $1 Million Challenge Grant from the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation demonstrates their deep commitment to the arts in our community. Our family foundation has been a longtime supporter of the arts in Broward County, specifically NSU Art Museum, and this challenge fits perfectly with our focus on arts and education. We are extremely excited to be a part of this challenge and look forward to the continued success of our local, world-class museum.”
