Reasons to consider a gift to the Brooklyn Music School:

  • We bring the gift of music to thousands of young people every year – for many of these children we are their only exposure to music and dance instruction

  • We have a world-class faculty and our students have gone on to study at some of the top conservatories in the world

  • BMS is a financially stable and growing organization, with over 80% of our operating budget generated by user fees

  • BMS enjoys the oversight of a dedicated Board of Trustees with rigorous oversight and audit procedures in place and protections against conflicts of interest

  • BMS offers significant financial aid to make our instruction affordable, with over 35% of our students between the ages of 15-25 receiving some form of financial assistance

BMS 2019 Capital Match Campaign

Please consider helping us to match funds that have been allocated by the NY State Council on the Arts for badly needed upgrades to our BMS Playhouse, including installation of theater air conditioning and a renovation of our theater bathrooms. We have already raised $140,000 out of the $250,000 budget, but we need your help to close the gap and complete this work.

Please support us through making a gift online, via text, by mail, or arranging an in-person meeting to discuss major donations. We offer both endowed scholarship and facility improvement opportunities to individual, institutional, and corporate donors.
