Annual Fund

How can my gift make a difference for The Boston Conservatory?

Gifts to the Annual Fund are put to immediate use and directed to the areas where they are most needed.

Tuition fees account for 70% of the Conservatory’s annual revenues. Donations directed to the Annual Fund build a bridge between tuition revenues and the actual cost of a Conservatory education, ensuring that all students—regardless of financial need—have access to a first-class performing arts education.

Your gift of any amount can give students the opportunity to say “yes” to the educational and artistic experience of The Boston Conservatory.

Here are just a few examples of what your gift, small or large, can do:

  • $10 will cover the recorded audition submission fee for a prospective student in need
  • $25 will replace one stage light bulb for the theater
  • $100 will tune an upright piano
  • $500 will cover the cost of a masterclass with a guest artist
  • $1,000 will secure permission to stage a Broadway musical
  • $10,000 will provide scholarship aid to deserving students

Support the Annual Fund today, and your gift will ensure the excellence of our educational and artistic programs tomorrow.
