Our Philanthropic Partner

HAPCO’s educational programs help young people in Central Florida further their education through music and the arts. We assist youth, particularly in low-income communities, who are aspiring to a career in the arts as well as those using their talents to fund their higher education. Since 2001, our non-profit foundation has worked to instill in young people a passion for excellence in all facets of their lives.

Youth receive instruction and insights from our strong network of educators and mentors who develop and teach our programs. They include university-level educators, professional musicians and artists, and first and second generation Florida Highwaymen painters. Our program curricula include core theory and technique training, alongside practical information including career options, technical tools and real-world application of skill sets.

Through our Kenneth R. Tolbert Scholarship Fund, HAPCO creates programs and projects to impact young people in our community – opening their eyes to the possibilities the arts offer them as individuals. We also serve our communities’ young-at-heart senior citizens, with special programs that encourage active senior living. We assist both individuals and community programs. Our events are tailored to unite the Central Florida community through music and the arts.
