"Top Non-Profit"

New York, NY – The Apogee Foundation has announced that in its 2009/2010 season it will build on its historic record of achievements fostering creative excellence worldwide by introducing new multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural programs designed to empower creative artists to achieve their greatest potential.

Apogee President Kenneth Schneider said: "It is my pleasure to applaud the Foundation's dedicated supporters around the world for the increasing levels of recognition and success their efforts have been achieving. The continuing expansion of the Foundation's programs worldwide demonstrates the increasing importance of our mission: inspiring mankind to fulfill its greatest vision of itself."

During the 2008/2009 season just concluded, Apogee achieved new milestones of global prestige and effectiveness, resulting in the Foundation being named “Top Non-Profit” in the inaugural Fast Pitch! Business Awards: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/media/2009/apogee_foundation_top_nonprofit.php

Apogee also partnered with the international media and technology group Aurience Ltd. to create greater awareness of Apogee Awards laureates, increase the impact of Apogee Academy educational programs, and expand the reach of Apogee Artists performance events worldwide:

During the season to come, Apogee’s trademark Synergy Programs, which offer artists from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to transcend cultural boundaries together, will take center stage. In the next phase of Synergy's evolution, the Foundation focus on the power of sacred music as a transcendent medium that can enable the sharing of values and convey new forms of understanding: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/media/2008/collaboration_spiritual_traditions.php

The Apogee Foundation: "Achieving the Potential"

Apogee is a global philanthropic organization dedicated to discovering, developing and celebrating creative excellence

The Foundation's efforts in the coming year will be directed towards 'reinventing the future of human creativity' by re-envisioning the types of institutions within which creative artists' careers evolve. In doing so, Apogee plans to consolidate the most effective educational and artistic traditions from both East and West into global creative centers where gifted artists can achieve their fullest potential together.

Apogee invites people everywhere to participate in its mission of fostering creative excellence around the world. The Foundation’s management therefore invites the public to participate in shaping its future agency by responding to a brief questionnaire contained in Apogee's recent newsletter: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/documents/newsletters/apogee_newsletter_fall_2009.pdf
