Hackworth Challenge

Montalvo Arts Center

Help us Meet the Challenge!

Montalvo Arts Center is pleased to announce that we have received a dollar-for-dollar challenge grant from Michael and Joan Hackworth in the amount of $50,000 to underwrite the Cypress Salon Series, Classical music programming and other performing arts programs. 

It is the Hackworth’s hope that we will be able to leverage their gift to expand our fundraising efforts. To that end, the challenge will match new gifts, gifts from previous donors who have not given in the last two years and increases in current giving.

In honor of this very generous gift, the 2008-09 Cypress Salon Series has been renamed "The Michael and Joan Hackworth Classical Salon Series."

If you are interested in making a contribution, please contact Deputy Development Director Liz Waldo by phone at 408.961.5806 or by email
