Thank you so much for donating
As a non-profit, we rely heavily on financial and in-kind donations to keep our program going. Your gifts make an incredible impact on the lives and futures of those we serve. The cost of programing per student, per year, is around $7,000. That's a significant portion of most of our families' yearly income.
Become a Music Haven Fellows Sponsor
Music Haven Fellows are leaders, mentors, and ambassadors for Music Haven. They are selected through an application and interview process from among our older students (14 and up), and must demonstrate leadership, commitment, responsibility, and consistent effort on their instruments. They mentor younger students, assist at events, lead public service projects, and speak to and play for audiences in their communities and throughout the region, all while participating in weekly lessons, group classes, and ensembles at Music Haven. Sponsors of Music Haven Fellows are not only invited to attend recitals and concerts, but also as honored guests at our Fellows and Sponsors events at which they can meet our Fellows, share a meal together, and--of course--hear some beautiful music. Sponsors are also invited to participate in the Music Haven Fellows Network, which provides support and networking opportunities for Fellows after they graduate from high school. Individual or Corporate Fellows Sponsors may have their sponsorships recognized publicly in a variety of ways, from program ads and corporate logos on our website or on our String Quartet Truck, to public announcements at concerts. Sponsorships may also be made in honor or memory of a loved one. Sponsorships are available at 3 levels: $5000, $7500, and $10,000. Each level covers different components of Music Haven's programming (for example, one-on-one lessons, group classes, orchestra, chamber music coachings, workshops, concert trips, instruments, mentoring), as well as a $500/year stipend.
