permanent Levitt venues and AMP Sites are much more than music venues. They are destinations where people of all ages and walks of life come together to discover new worlds—and each other—through music. We empower communities to transform underused or abandoned public spaces into vibrant third places where neighbors, friends and families gather to experience the joy of live music. Ours is a movement to strengthen communities across America through the power of free, live music. But we cannot do it alone. With your support, free Levitt concerts will continue to bring joy to people in existing Levitt locations, and we'll be able to bring the Levitt program to people in additional towns and cities across the country. Together, we can strengthen American community life one city, and one concert, at a time.
A smart investment
Your support of the Levitt Foundation will make a transformative and enduring impact in cities across America. Here's why:
At the core of the permanent Levitt venue program are public/private partnerships that leverage public resources, reduce expenses and maximize efficiencies. In addition, the Levitt Foundation provides streamlined support to the network of pavilions, offering cost-saving resources and ensuring efficient operations.
The permanent Levitt venue program requires three dedicated partners—the City, the local Friends of Levitt nonprofit and the national Levitt Foundation—each committed to the long-term success of the local Levitt program. The investment of these three partners creates a solid foundation and instills confidence that the Levitt program is long-lasting, inspring the community's ongoing support of their Levitt venue.
Both and sLevitt AMP grantees benefit from being part of a national network, one that provides shared resources, funding opportunities and a community of peers to exchange knowledge and ideas. This national support system, combined with the Levitt Foundation's reputation for excellence, allows Levitt partners and grantnees to make a greater impact in their community.
