The Foundation supports community performing arts venues around greater Tarpon Springs in a variety of ways. In addition to events and performances, we fund capital projects and performing arts education and activities.

The Kathleen Monahan Foundation (KMF), a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide supplemental funding and enhancements for the Tarpon Arts program and the City of Tarpon Springs, celebrated the newly renovated lobby for the Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center (PAC) located in Tarpon Springs City Hall. Members of the Monahan Foundation board joined Mayor Chris Alahouzos, City Manager Mark LeCouris, members of the Tarpon Springs Board of Commissioners, and Diane Wood and Kelley Riedy from Tarpon Arts in officially opening the new lobby.
The Performing Arts Center (PAC) was recently updated with new lighting, sound system, and a rear projection capability to increase the flexibility of set backdrops during theatrical productions giving the PAC the ability to transport patrons to Paris and Japan in productions such as “Libertaire” and “The Mikado.”
The next project for the Monahan Foundation, made possible by a donation from KMF Board Member David Wladaver and his wife Carolyn, is the renovation the Box Office, which will be completed very soon.
