Why I Give

The generosity of Boston Conservatory alumni, parents and friends provides invaluable support for the college's most important programs and priorities.  Your gifts reaffirm our mission to prepare and inspire students to perform at the highest level in their art and in their lives.   

The reasons individuals choose to support The Boston Conservatory may vary, but they always reflect the special nature of our community: 

For parents, the choice to support the Conservatory may be based on the gratitude they feel for the training and motivation their son or daughter receives.

For alumni, it may be the life-long impact of a faculty member on their careers.

For friends and audience members, it may be excellence of a student’s performance in a work by Antonín Dvorák, Gilbert & Sullivan, José Limón, or Stephen Sondheim in our Mainstage or at one of our many community outreach sites.   

Whatever the reason, giving to The Boston Conservatory helps sustain the core mission of the college and a personal connection with one of the great performing arts colleges and most promising young artists in the nation.
