Dean Valerie B. Morris and Associate Dean Michael W. Haga of the College of Charleston School of the Arts have been our gracious hosts as groups of Deans and their institution's donors attended concerts, theatrical productions, exhibitions, and many other events during a special visit to Charleston, South Carolina. The planning, attention to detail and hospitality were second to none! The ICFAD Board of Directors and members who participated in this opportunity to foster a strengthened appreciation for the arts for their donors extend heartfelt appreciation to our colleagues at the College of Charleston for their gracious hospitality.

Southern charm is a force to be reckoned with as far as Travel + Leisure readers are concerned. Charleston topped the publication’s world’s top cities awards. Click here to read more.

Gian Carlo Menotti founded Spoleto Festival USA, one of the world's foremost performing arts festivals, in 1977. Since that time, the festival has developed a reputation for presenting cutting-edge new work as well as well-loved classics in opera, dance, and other disciplines. The Piccolo Spoleto Festival, a production of the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs, complements the international focus of the "big" festival by focusing on artists who are primarily from the Southeastern United States.

Your input is always welcome as to where ICFAD should plan future Donor Development events for its members.
