GIVING TO EMF
For 5 weeks each summer over the past 57 years, EMF teams some of the world’s most exciting musical mentors with exceptional young artists fostering a new generation of musicians.
EMF is donor-driven and every dollar that comes through our doors makes a difference in the lives of the gifted students who spend the summer with us. 220 young artists from around the globe are chosen annually from almost 800 applicants. More than 80% of these young musicians receive full or partial scholarships to study with our renowned professional faculty.
EMF’s funding includes grants and sponsorships from corporations and foundations, student tuition, ticket sales and the generous contributions made by individuals.
Here is your opportunity to make a difference. Join us and be a partner in our future by donating a gift of any size to EMF. Your contribution touches every aspect of our operations: student scholarships, guest artist compensation, production costs, faculty support, housing and more.
All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
How You Can Help
Types of Gifts
1) UNRESTRICTED GIFTS
Unrestricted gifts enable EMF to use your contribution in the manner that best serves its mission and programs. Your unrestricted gift supports salaries for our teaching faculty, music purchases, guest artist fees, facility rental, and much more.
2) SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS
Or, you may choose to designate your gift to one of our Scholarship Funds. Each year, EMF needs to raise $300,000 for scholarships to enable gifted students from across the country and world to attend our pre-professional training program, many of whom would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience EMF.
