The Carol Paumgarten Fund for Steps on Broadway

Carol Paumgarten
With the recent passing of our Co-Founder Carol Paumgarten, we are launching The Carol Paumgarten Fund for Steps on Broadway, to raise funds to support our dancers with their training. Carol co-founded Steps in 1979, with Patrice Soriero, and was the shining light that led our way for 40 years. We honor her legacy by re-committing to our mission: to be the center of excellence in dance training, to maintain the integrity of each dance form, and to serve the needs of dancers of all ages and levels.

Please consider making a donation to the Fund in support of our Scholarship & Financial Aid Program. Steps’ Pre-Professional, Conservatory, and International Independent Study programs serve the needs of young dancers by preparing them for college and professional careers. Scholarships and awards are provided to deserving students based on merit. In addition, Steps provides financial aid to deserving families to ensure that there are no financial obstacles to dance training. Your gift will enable dancers to fulfill their dreams of studying dance at Steps.

To jumpstart our efforts, an anonymous donor has offered to match dollar for dollar all contributions up to $50,000. You can double your gift and make a significant impact in the lives of our dancers!

To make a donation via credit card, please click this link and you will be taken to the Unique Projects Online Donation Form. Please select Steps on Broadway from the drop-down list.

To make a donation via check, please make the check payable to Unique Projects Inc., noting Steps on Broadway in the memo line, and mail it to Joe Lanteri, Executive Director, Steps on Broadway, 2121 Broadway 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10023.
