Questions About Giving


 Why does Berklee need my support? Does my gift really make a difference?
Yes, every gift makes a difference. In addition to maintaining and improving facilities, equipment, and technology at the college, the Berklee Fund supports student financial aid and scholarships.

Three quarters of all the students at Berklee receive support from Berklee through financial aid and/or scholarships. As the number of donors and dollars increases, more aid becomes available for our outstanding musicians. Your support can help talented students who, without your help, would not be able to afford a Berklee education.
