Our Vision

At the core of our vision is the belief that art can transform the lives of those touched by it. To this end, we aim to combine high-quality performances, artist residencies, and arts education in a multi-faceted program that will deliver broad impact to our community.

For the future, we are focusing our energies on growing the programming we present, and on expanding the partnerships we develop with other arts organizations.

Our Mission

The Catskill Mountain Foundation is a 501 (C)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to arts, culture and educational enhancements in the northern Catskill Mountain region. The Foundation's goals are to:

1) As a leading multi-arts center in the Catskill region, create programs in the performing arts, visual arts, studio arts, literary arts, and film. CMF currently operates its programs in the Villages of Hunter and Tannersville and in the Town of Windham in Greene County, NY;

2) Support the work of artists through exhibition and performance opportunities and residency programs;

3) Create cultural and educational opportunities for residents and visitors in the Catskill Region that support the goals of inclusion, diversity, equity and access;

4) Use these initiatives to build on the Mountaintop's current assets and to turn these three close communities into a major cultural and educational center in the region.
