We honor the late Richard B. Fisher for his generosity and leadership in building and supporting this superb center that bears his name by offering outstanding arts experiences. We recognize and thank the following individuals, corporations, and foundations that share Dick’s and our belief in presenting and creating art for the enrichment of society. Ticket sales cover less than 15 percent of our programming. Help us sustain the Fisher Center and ensure that the performing arts are a part of our lives. We encourage and need you to join our growing list of donors.

Major support for the Fisher Center and Bard Music Festival Programs has been provided by the following individuals, corporations and foundations.  Thank you for your generosity and partnership in presenting extraordinary performing arts programming in the Hudson Valley.

Fisher Center programs are made possible in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
