Aspen Music Festival And School

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the single most important source of revenue for the AMFS. Comprising nearly 40 percent of the institution's annual budget, the Annual Fund provides assistance to every aspect of our operations and supports our ongoing needs during this unprecedented time. Your gift directly supports our dedicated staff and artist-faculty, the AMFS mission, and our long-term stability.


Designate your Annual Fund gift to a part of the AMFS mission that appeals most to you!

  • The AMFS Fund—unrestricted assistance to every aspect of the organization, from concert performances and financial aid to facilities management and production costs.
  • Student assistance and support for scholarships, travel, food and health services
  • Supporting artist-faculty and honoring their valuable contributions.
  • Education and community programming—bringing quality music education to local youth and summer programs for children and families
