Become a Member of The Liberace Foundation and Museum
Liberace considered the creation of The Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts one of his greatest accomplishments. In his book, “The Things I Love,” Liberace stated, “a lot of good things have happened to me in show business and I want to do what I can to give others just starting out a career boost. I hope the Foundation projects will continue into the future to offer gifted newcomers financial help, and in many cases, artistic exposure as well.” Since its incorporation in 1976, the Foundation has helped more than 2,500 students in excess of $5 million at over 120 of the nation’s most prestigious institutions in music, theatre, dance and the visual arts.

By becoming a member of The Liberace Foundation and Museum, you help continue Liberace’s generous legacy of providing scholarships to emerging artists in the creative and performing arts.
