For over 100 years, the Yale School of Music has been educating promising musicians while offering public performances that enhance the cultural life of our community. From the beginning, Yale’s musical activities have been supported by generous donations of all sizes.

Donations have supported the development of the School into one of the world’s foremost music schools. Gifts are responsible for every element that makes the Yale School of Music what it is today: student scholarships, the renovations of buildings and facilities, the expansion of the faculty, and the establishment of organizations like the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments.

Patrons of our performance programs—the Yale Philharmonia, Horowitz Piano Series, Oneppo Chamber Music Series, Yale Opera, and more— allow the School to present world-class musicians on our stages. Gifts to the Annual Fund support the School’s ongoing work of educating the creative musicians and cultural leaders of tomorrow. Join the Yale School of Music community by making a gift today.
