Aspen Music Festival And School

Endowment Support

The AMFS is dedicated to attracting the highest-quality students by offering financial assistance, the world’s best teachers, innovative programs, and creative programming. Gifts to the endowment, with these goals in mind, will ensure that the AMFS continues as the preeminent summer institution of classical music education, performances, and presentations.

Student Support

Financial aid is the most powerful tool in recruiting the world’s best students. Our aim is to increase funding for full and partial scholarships such that tuition assistance ultimately will be provided for 90 percent of students each summer, up from 75 percent currently.  Donors may contribute to existing funds or create new funds to honor AMFS artist-faculty members.
