What the Derby Day Soiree’ helps support!
The Columbus Rotary Foundation and its partners give up to $250,000 annually to our community. These funds focus on improving the lives of children and families locally and in other countries. This event serves as a key component in raising the funds to continue our efforts.
"Report on Arts & Culture in Central Ohio and Why it's Important" Tom Katzenmeyer, President & CEO
As the leader of the Greater Columbus Arts Council, Tom is passionate about helping our incredibly talented artists and arts organizations grow and expand.
Cities are defined by their creative energy—a vibrant community is a vibrant arts community. Tom says, "One of the things I love most about my work is convening and connecting people—like helping Columbus Dance Theater export their amazing work "Claudel" to Paris."
GCAC are also significant grant makers—who supply operating support, community impact, travel and professional development grants as well as give out fellowship awards.
When not talking about arts, or attending arts events, Tom is often working in other nonprofit organizations, including serving as Chair, Mid-Ohio Food Bank Board and on the board of the YMCA of Central Ohio. And in the summer, on those rare, warm and sunny days on Lake Erie, you’ll find him hanging out at Put-In-Bay on a boat.
