Corporate Giving

Our corporate giving program is an opportunity for community-minded businesses across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and beyond to support Curtis’ tuition-free classical music education while engaging audiences around the world. Corporate investment provides a variety of advantages for your company including benefits to share with your team or customers, opportunities to increase visibility for your brand, and, in the case of our Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) program, favorable tax credits. 

Every year, Curtis draws over 20,000 audience members to its more than 200 public performances in Philadelphia, and hundreds of thousands more through online offerings. And with this comes the opportunity to publicly celebrate Curtis’s corporate supporters.   

If your corporation is interested in supporting Curtis and its programs, we would be delighted to discuss how we can help you achieve your philanthropic goals while supporting life-long music lovers in the making.

These programs enhance music education at schools throughout Philadelphia, while allowing Curtis’ students the unique opportunity to employ their artistry in service of community transformation.
