The Dudamel Foundation


As I stated before, as a follower of Dr. José Antonio Abreu and as a new resident of the United States I take a stand for the expansion of El Sistema around the world. I discovered that Gustavo Dudamel started a foundation to support his projects on El Sistema and I think this is a good idea that I would like to support, and it is possible that you also help Gustavo and all of us who are in the busines of tranforming the lives of children with the power of music. 


The Dudamel Foundation is dedicated to the belief that the arts play an essential role in creating a more just and peaceful society. Music, in particular, provides a universal language that transcends our differences and has a unique capacity to build bridges of understanding among all peoples. Music does more than nourish the human spirit. Its very practice instills focus and discipline, respect for others, a spirit of collaboration, and many other positive values that make us better citizens of the world. The Foundation's goal is to expand the opportunity to experience music for as many children and communities as possible.


Gustavo and Eloisa Dudamel are co-chairs of the Foundation, which was established in 2012.


The Dudamel Foundation has been granted tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the US tax code as a nonprofit corporation organized exclusively for charitable purposes.
