Giving to the Curtis Institute of Music sustains the next generation of musical legends.

A unique full-tuition scholarship policy keeps Curtis at the forefront of the world’s conservatories by ensuring that admissions are based on artistic promise alone. With no tuition revenue, Curtis is indebted to countless donors who have followed in the footsteps of founder Mary Louise Curtis Bok. Your contribution of any amount can make an impact on the health and vibrancy of the world’s leading conservatory and the musical lives of its students.

Charitable gifts are essential to Curtis’s continued success, making a world-class education possible for our talented students. Approximately one-quarter of our annual budget is sustained through recurring annual gifts—primarily from individuals, and also from corporations, foundations, and government agencies. Annual gifts support educational programs, performances, student wellness, and other initiatives.

Join dedicated classical music enthusiasts with your support today!
