Giving to the Eastman Community Music School

Committed to enriching the cultural life of the Rochester region, each year the Eastman Community Music School (ECMS) provides music instruction and performance opportunities to 1,600 students of all ages. Through the on-going generosity of parents, current and former students, and friends, ECMS is able to offer student scholarships, support faculty development, strengthen academic programs, develop partnerships, and sustain the school’s operations and activities.

A financial contribution to ECMS can help provide support in a variety of ways.  You can support the division’s ongoing annual needs, including educational programs, scholarships, and general operations by giving to the Eastman Community Music School Annual Fund. The Eastman Pathways fund helps supports crucial scholarships for Rochester City School District students. Support for New Horizons funds provide musical experiences for adults which are open to beginning and experienced musicians of all levels.

If you are interested in contributing to the Eastman Community Music School and have questions, or would like information about establishing  a new fund, please contact Danielle Abramson, Director of Advancement at or call (585) 274-1058.

Thank you to our generous scholarship donors!
