Giving to the Curtis Institute of Music sustains the next generation of musical legends.

A unique full-tuition scholarship policy keeps Curtis at the forefront of the world's conservatories by ensuring that admissions are based on artistic promise alone. With no tuition revenue, Curtis is indebted to countless donors who have followed in the footsteps of founder Mary Louise Curtis Bok. Their vision and generosity endows student fellowships, programs, and faculty chairs; strengthens the Annual Fund; and maintains Curtis's singular stature.

Now, when you give a gift to Curtis’s annual fund, your gift could be matched dollar for dollar!

Mark Rubenstein, chairman of Curtis’s board of trustees, has offered to match up to $150,000 in new, increased and additional gifts that are made to Curtis’s annual fund by May 31. If we are successful, this means a total of $300,000 will be raised to ensure Curtis’s tradition of excellence and innovation in music. Please help us meet this special challenge by making a tax-deductible gift to Curtis’s annual fund by May 31.




Thank you for considering a gift to Curtis! The school is grateful to the many individuals and organizations in Philadelphia and around the world whose contributions to Curtis ensure its annual and continuing success.

There are many ways to support Curtis. If you have questions about any of the options available to you, please contact a member of the advancement staff. The Curtis advancement staff is committed to the mission of the Curtis Institute of Music and to raising the funds needed to educate and train the legends of tomorrow.
