Rich folks think they can do any damn thing they want to ... it's about time for a Change.

Rich folks think they can do any damn thing they want to ...with impunity's time for that to Change.  Glorya Kaufman.

 I am going to tell the story of Glorya Kaufman a Los Angeles philanthropist that was my client beginning in late 2007.   Glorya Kaufman in spirit mirrors the famed Leona Helmsley, the notorious Queen of Mean  it is amazing.   I remembered when maids and others came forth and talked about what a bitch Leona was and how she victimized people.  The Helmsleys (he died and she had to serve the time) spent 8 million dollars on their dream estate and then refused to pay the group of contractors, including decorators, gardeners, painters and landscapers, for their hard labor and materials, they also refused to pay taxes on the improvements and proper taxes on the value of the estate.

 I almost dropped my teeth....This is Glorya Kaufman this is her estate, this is her pledge to UCLA for the Glorya Kaufman Hall , this is the State of California, this is the County of Los Angeles , she hates to pay people and she hates to pay taxes and she victimizes people who have worked or provided services for her and she victimizes the taxpayers of the state of California and the County and City of Los Angeles.  Anyway read the Leona story and you'll catch a hint of what I mean.   

Glorya Kaufman under the Glorya Kaufman Dance Foundation has made major donations to Inner City Arts, Mar Vista Family Center, Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, and the coup de grace Glorya Kaufman presents Dance at the Music Center.   Well I orchestrated all of that under my marketing and development company using 30+ years experience brand marketing in the entertainment industry.  I created the Glorya Kaufman Dance Foundation and created Glorya Kaufman as the "Dancing Philanthropist".  These donations were made 'expressly' to elevate; her profile in the philanthropic community, her negative image as a shrew, a racist, a homophobe and a deadbeat with her additional desire for this cleansing and image raising would help her in her attempts to deprive her children and grandchildren of the family estate.

Hmmm, after having successfully developed unknown artists this was great... here was money that could be used to help children, dancers, etc.   Perfect for me....having worked with difficult artists I could suffer through the nightmare of GK when the end result was kids and dancers with dreams helped forever!  Did I mention these were 'endowments'?    You may think I'm kidding about the 'I did this' but Glorya is functionally illiterate and if I was a psychiatrist I would say bi-polar so that meant content and speeches and co-interviewing etc....fighting about hair,makeup and clothing everything .  A judge and at least one doctor agree with me that she needed help. The really cuckoo won't get help especially rich,mean and cuckoo.

Anyway, right after GK received major accolades and press saving the Dance division of the Music Center.  She freaked out and tried to get rid of people and close down the foundation because she had made a pledge of 20 million and she wanted out of it (I've got the emails)  Firing me in her mind and dissolving the foundation was a plan that she and her so called daughter (wink) Debbie Schwartz another idiot (I was at that time secretary of the foundation) would get her out of the pledge with all the publicity intact (she stopped paying UCLA owing 2million but that's for later).... she couldn't but as the year progressed she just stopped paying people and firing them ignoring contracts etc. from attorneys to gardeners....myself and Solters and Digney who I had brought to the project were included.  Glorya ended owing me 35k on my contract and 35k in expenses which included her phone service and mail service for the foundation and foundation travel -including GK's.  That wasn't enough,she then began to defame me with my contacts, including perjury with linkdin and WIPO.  What a bitch.  

I am going to write more about her UCLA stuff ... County stuff etc. later.  Her perjury's and defamations have been aided by her old accountant Frank Lee, and her newest Harvey Bookstein ....Glorya is old and these two are angling for trusteeships which is ok with me but they feed the evil of her and that makes them complicit because she couldn't think these lies up on her own.   I am going to write more because aside from me and my life....her actions have devastated others ....a vendor that she stopped paying lost his home his family is homeless, another will have to file bankruptcy because these are small businesses that cannot take $35k or $60k or $100k losses.   But lastly, her children called and asked if I could help them with info to stop her from taking away their inheritance and their children's inheritance.... that capped it.   This woman sent me into a spiral of depression that impacted my health and her defamations impacted my ability to work and thus my finances.  I was silent because I didn't want her to stop paying charities like Inner City Arts ...they are paid....Alvin Ailey was another concern however their executive director's actions have created this no longer being a concern of mine.  

This world is filled with people who are just plain evil and the streets of this country are filled with good people who are the victims of this same 'evil' .... I think of her children older now with children of their own still suffering the abuse of this horrible woman.  Evil comes in many forms but it has one objective and that is the destruction of others I can't stop them all but I certainly can use my voice to expose this one.  Some things Are Just Wrong 


  1. Wow! Why am I not surprised? Wealth brings with it a strange construct of evil. Demonic people, who happen to also be wealthy, all have a connective tissue and a thread that runs through everything they do. They take pleasure in withholding anything they've promised. From making an appearance, showing up for a meeting or presentation, to not paying funds to deserving individuals or organizations. This kind of negative default behavior is built-in, but it serves to keep them at the center of attention and conversation. They take great enjoyment watching people dance and posture to somehow cajole them into making good on their promises. The best "medicine" for them is to be ignored at all times. Never to be noticed until they actually make good on their promises, then and ONLY then, should anyone even remotely remember their names.

  2. Max unfortunately in order to raise her profile and give her credibility I arranged that each of the endowments carried with it heavy naming....The Glorya Kaufman Dance Studio....GK Scholars at Ailey/Fordham, Gk pavilion at Ailey in NY....and the Dance Department at the Music Center "Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center. I will never regret the benefit for children and the dance world...Never....I will regret however caring about this horrible woman, hoping that by showing her the goodness of the children ....that the good work and the appreciation of the people helped would warm her heart and heal her ....but I lost the war with her dark side and when I was rejoicing with my arms open she was able to stab me and she keeps stabbing whenever she gets the opportunity. She hates my mind and my character and the color of my skin...and for a moment I forgot!!!!

  3. You have properly identified Glorya Kaufman as the vile and vindictive personality that is really her. No one has ever bennefited from Glorya Kaufman, not even her children. She has made a mockery of philanthropy and of Donald Kaufman's name, he was really interested in benefiting the community and of making education available to everyone. Thanks for your truthful posting.

  4. You are correct saying that Glorya Kaufman is like Leona Helmsleys…AND YOU MADE THESE THREE COMPARISONS: (1) ”she victimized people”…(2)”refused to pay a group of contractors”…(3) “refused to pay taxes on the improvements and proper taxes on the value of the estate”…ALL THREE ARE 100% TRUE.
    Worse…there are documents on file at the Depart of Public Building and Safety, the soils engineering report filed by Hamilton Associates…that contains an estate history …that reveals that Mrs. Kaufman has a 20 year history of remodeling without permits…as you say above, “refused to pay taxes…”
    And these documents plainly identify that over …three buildings were built …WITHOUT PERMITS…no increase in property taxes. Including, an illegal 3,000 square foot master bedroom suite added to the main house after the Northridge earthquake …yes, WITHOUT PERMITS and no increase in property taxes…
    And, yes she is litigating against the Kaufman children…they cut her off…by protesting her continued “non-permitted” remodeling addiction (over 20 years of known violations)…the County of Los Angeles could issue could tax liens on the estate for the tens of millions of dollars in back taxes owed…why they do not is a mystery…
    And, yes she victimizes contractors…it is my understanding that she does not pay her bills and that one contactor did not get paid of materials delivered to her estate…leaving more than $24,000.00 in charges on his credit card…as a result he ended up in foreclosure and he and his wife and children were put into the streets…
    As stated above, almost all of the facts are contained in the Soils Engineering report filed with Los Angeles…but they have not prosecuted the matter …no permits for over 5 million of dollars in improvements…this is tax cheating at its worst…and it appears to be unpunished…YOU certainly would not get away with this kind of tax evasion…YOU would be in jail, and so would I!

  5. Now that the county assessor was arrested I wonder if GK's glaring 18+ years of listing a 10million dollar estate at 1750,000 was in it.....wonder how many jobs could have been saved if these folks paid their property taxes.
