A Message fo Kevin Jenkins, Executive Vice President and Chief Opeating Office


The current divisive climate in our


country has caused all of us to reflect on what it means to truly collaborate and stand united in our collective effort to better society. Manchester Bidwell Corporation’s core values: Respect, Embrace, Shape, Influence, and Listen are exemplary tenets that not only benefit our organization but could serve the wider community as well.


At Manchester Bidwell Corporation,


we are a diverse organization featuring four unique affiliates and one division. They all serve varying needs and aid in our overarching educational mission; yet, while they are all very different, they work together to support and inspire both adults


and youth to dream


bigger and accomplish more. Fall marks back to school for most families, and MCG Youth & Arts is ready to welcome Pittsburgh Public School students into their after-school programming. Bidwell Training Center has unveiled a new website and continues to provide a world-class education for adults in transition. The


Drew Mathieson Center is exploring exciting new partnerships to foster their youth programming; and MCG Jazz is celebrating 30 years of preserving, presenting, and promoting jazz. The National Center for Arts and Technology is replicating the MBC model all over the world with the Akko Center for Arts & Technology scheduled to open in Israel on November


1 7, 20 1 6 .


Manchester Bidwell Corporation continues to make a difference in the lives of all that seek beauty, hope, and inspiration. We thank you for your continued support and appreciate donations large and small.
