The House That Satchmo Built

The Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation (LAEF) recently voted to award an additional $80,000 per year for the next three years to the Armstrong House and Archives at Queens College. This additional funding supplements the $150,000 per year currently donated by the LAEF. The new funds will be used to hire a full-time Development Officer who will be responsible for managing House fundraising efforts. The LAEF has two major goals regarding the House: securing funds for the House opening in 2002 and building an endowment of at least $3 Million for a solid financial future.
