Visit their website, to learn. You have it backwards-this group supports the conservatory with financial and strategic resources. Without FOPCON, the conservatory would not have funds for emergency repairs, education and outreach, and expansion. None of your tax dollars go to this non-profit.

Never really understood this group. They use the tax supported conservatory for the gain of their organization. How much do they pay in rent? How much of the conservatory do they use that takes away from conservatory staff? How much of my tax $$ actually are going to the profitability of FOPCON?
