Support Our Students
The ability to offer a student a scholarship to offset tuition often makes the difference as to whether a young artist attends Meadowmount. Currently, 40% of Meadowmount students receive scholarship funds, and it is our goal to be able to offer robust scholarship support to 100% of our students through our Scholarship Fund.
We encourage donors to consider setting up a current use or endowed scholarship, which provides assistance to students over multiple years through a single gift.
Enrich Our Programs
Master classes and private coaching sessions with our guest artists throughout the summer are an integral part of the high quality experience that makes a difference for Meadowmount students. Our Artistic Director’s Fund provides students with essential opportunities to learn from and play alongside distinguished musicians visiting our campus during the summer session.
Fellowship programs for the most exceptional among our students are key in assisting emerging professional musicians in realizing their full potential. We invite donors to establish named fellowships in support of our inspiring students and programs.
Care for Our Campus
Meadowmount’s iconic campus within the Adirondacks provides a secluded and safe environment for our students to dedicate focus to their musical development. Our continued efforts to modernize our campus include the expansion of air conditioning throughout our dormitories, conversion of our Main House into a year-round facility, and preservation of our historical resources. Philanthropic support for these projects is essential and we welcome donors who would like to leave a legacy through a specific contribution to our Capital Fund.
Further Our Community Connection
Each season, supported by our Concert Fund, Meadowmount performs more than thirty public concerts. Local community members are invited on to our campus and surrounding concert venues, while partnerships with classical music content providers such as The Violin Channel enable Meadowmount’s music to be shared with public audiences around the world through live streamed events.
As the reach of Meadowmount’s music grows with its demand, costs associated with high quality production, off campus performances, and pre- and post-season opportunities also rise.
