Most people are unaware that this fabulous venue was built from private funds donated by the community of Houston, and then deeded to the City. The Hobby Center Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is responsible for the operations and capital maintenance of the facility.
The support and ongoing generosity of many individuals, corporations and foundations is integral to the Foundation's management and operation of the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
