Summer 2011

Many of Wesley Montgomery’s friends have chosen to remember him with gifts to NPN and the Porch.  The Porch 7th Ward Cultural Organization, for which NPN is the intermediary fiscal sponsor, is committed to preserving the cultures of New Orleans.  Wesley took a special interest in the Porch and used his own time to work as a mentor to the staff and to the Porch’s advisory council.  At last year’s 25th Anniversary Annual Meeting Wesley spoke of the valuable guidance he received from the mentors in his career.  It is in the spirit of this type of work that Wesley demonstrated throughout his professional life, and with a generous lead gift, that NPN has established the Wesley V. Montgomery Mentorship and Leadership award for a young arts leader of color.

If you would like to contribute, please use the “Donate Now” button on this website and indicate NPN or the Porch as the recipient of your memorial gift.  Or you may mail a check to National Performance Network, PO Box 56698, New Orleans, LA 70156.
