GIVE NOW!

Please help The Bard College Conservatory of Music meet a challenge...

In September 2008, the Conservatory received a $2.5 million challenge grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to create an endowment for the Conservatory's unique dual-degree program. Before we can use these funds, we must match the grant by September 2016 on a three-to-one basis with new endowment gifts and grants.

Other ways to help make the match:

$2,500 Host a Conservatory, chamber music group for a concert in your home

$5,000 Join us for a special house concert hosted by Martin and Toni Sosnoff.

$10,000 Name an annual scholarship at the Conservatory 

$200,000 Endow a named scholarship.

$25,000 to $150,000 Name a room in the new Conservatory building. 

$35 million Name the Bard College Conservatory of Music.

Contributions in any amount will help us meet the challenge, and support the artistic and educational programs of The Bard College Conservatory of Music.
Gifts are needed to help support scholarships and the other options described below. Please click on the GIVING OPTIONS and NAMING OPPORTUNITIES links below.
