Education Matching Grant

The Goldner Center for Children’s Opera Education

The Goldner Center for Children’s Opera Education at Palm Beach Opera aims to bring opera to children through interactive education and outreach programs.

In 2014, supporters Sandra and Paul Goldner established the Goldner Center for Children’s Opera Education with Palm Beach Opera through an ongoing $500,000 matching grant. Together, we will create a sustainable fund for continued education programming accessible to all in Palm Beach County and surrounding areas.

The Goldner Center for Children’s Opera Education is making a difference in the lives of our children by sharing the magic of opera!

Sandra and Paul Goldner on why they created the Goldner Center for Children’s Opera Education and ongoing matching grant for education programs.

“…We want to make sure that children get as much exposure to the arts as possible in our community. Our desire for the Opera is to focus attention on education by using its resources to expose children to opera. I think it is a very worthwhile venture and I hope that other people will feel the same way so that we can create a substantial fund to keep these programs going for a long time.”
