Maureen Pavia - Director, Stamford Gives Back
Over the past year and a half I have enjoyed many wonderful opportunities to serve on community event committees, to enjoy performances, and to support, encourage, and enable youth education and participation in the Performing Arts in Stamford. I am always amazed but never surprised at the network of corporate and individual support that is on-going within the Stamford community.
I am happy to let you know that this past July, I am an official 501 (c) (3) affiliation with the Stamford Center for the Arts/Palace Theatre (SCA) through my association, Stamford Gives Back (SGB). With this new partnership, I will continue to be committed to provide scholarships and educational opportunities to children in Connecticut. I am also determined to work closely with SCA in continuing their vision and mission of growth and excellence in Arts in Education programs.
