The Elville Center for the Creative Arts!

By Steve Elville | Posted in Estate Planning | No Comments

The attorneys and staff of Elville and Associates are proud of the firm’s charitable organization – the Elville Center for the Creative Arts. Founded on June 30, 2014 by Elville and Associates’ principal and lead attorney Stephen R. Elville, J.D., LL.M., the Elville Center is a 501(c)(iii) non-profit corporation that partners with local and regional businesses such as the classical music station 91.5 WBJC, Music and Arts, schools, the Columbia Orchestra, and other non-profit organizations to provide music instruments, music instrument rental, music lessons, and participation in music-related activities to and for children of all ages throughout Maryland and the mid-Atlantic region. The purpose of the Elville Center is to improve the quality of life of children of all ages by providing them the opportunity to learn music theory and application, and experience cultural events related to the musical and creative arts; and to use music and the promotion of music-related activities to transcend social and economic divisions.

As most of our clients are aware, Elville and Associates is an active sponsor of the arts through its support of WBJC classical radio and performances. The firm also promotes awareness of the arts by providing clients with opportunities to attend events at The Kennedy Center, The Strathmore, Modell Lyric Opera House, and other venues. Although Elville and Associates has traditionally supported and promoted music in the classical genre, student participants in Elville Center-sponsored educational activities have the ability to choose their own musical paths based on their own individual preferences, talents, and goals.

Your monetary donations and used musical instrument donations are critical to the success of the Elville Center’s mission. In addition to individual and corporate donations, Elville and Associates began its own contributions to the Elville Center in June, 2014. It is the hope of Mr. Elville that this charitable initiative will capture the imaginations and enthusiasm of our clients, business partners, and the community at large culminating in the fulfillment of many dreams and a continuation of the music.
