The FEU thanks its contributors

The Embassy of the United States of America in France has generously supported the FEU’s cultural program for the 2014-2015, 2018-2019 and 2020-2021 seasons.

Harriet Hale Woolley.

Harriet Hale Woolley, one of the major donors to the construction of the FEU, shared with the Gages the belief in “international rapprochement” (The New York Times, 1931). In her will, she left 500,000 dollars (the equivalent of 6 million euros today) to the FEU in order to create a scholarship for young americans. Harriet Hale Woolley was herself an amateur musician. She intended for the scholarships to be awarded to students in the arts and music, but also in psychiatry. Indeed, she considered that this discipline, still new at the time and pioneered in France, had saved her life.

The Gage Family.

Mabel and Homer Gage were enlightened patrons of the arts who lead numerous philanthropic actions in France. To finance the construction of the Fondation des États-Unis, the couple organized a fundraiser that mobilized generous donors united by the same desire to promote dialogue between the two cultures. From the outset, the Gages encouraged the practice of the arts in the within the FEU. It became a place of artistic emulation in the south of Paris, in the heart of the Montsouris neighborhood.

Donors of Rooms.

The cost of one room was 2500 dollars, to be named by the donor.
