Annual Fund

A summer at Kinhaven can be life-changing for a young musician, but many are unable to attend without financial aid. The generous support of our alumni and friends through our Annual Fund helps provide scholarships to students who attend Senior and Junior Sessions each year.

The Capital Fund enables Kinhaven to maintain our beautiful campus so generations of musicians may develop a deep appreciation for music and forge friendships that last the rest of their lives. Contributions and pledges allow us to build much-needed new cabins for faculty accommodations, upgrade our concert facilities and common spaces, and purchase new musical instruments.

Planned Giving

If you haven’t been as engaged with Kinhaven recently, think about getting more involved with us this year!

For our alumni:

Class Representatives. Consider becoming a representative to help connect fellow Kinhaven alumni of your age back to what is happening today.

Alumni Outreach. Help to identify alumni who are actively involved professionally in the performing arts and tell their inspiring stories – so often only our alumni know of their friends who are now doing great things.

For all of our donors:

Planned Giving. Kinhaven has been fortunate to receive numerous grants of appreciated stock and other forms of donations over the years. Please let us know that you have included Kinhaven in your will or estate plans, or consider a simple bequest to Kinhaven.

In-Kind Donations. Do you have a business or are you a decision-maker who may be able to provide in-kind services to Kinhaven? Past in-kind providers have been able to gift such things as legal services, sign making, heating and ventilation repair and installation, construction/contracting, landscaping, printing and web production, and many more. Do you have a business that can be of help to Kinhaven? Perhaps you have seen a need that you can uniquely meet.

Increase your Annual Fund Donation. Please continue to support the Annual Fund above and beyond what you have considered in the past.

Capital Fund and other Special Projects. Give as you are able for special projects and needs.

Grants. Help to identify private foundations (maybe your own) who would be drawn to Kinhaven’s mission.

The Kinhaven community is not just a group of unrelated people, but is a family who has experienced and been touched by the spirit which uniquely exists as a result of the commitment of Kinhaven’s faculty, staff, students and supporters. There has never been a greater time to get involved with Kinhaven. The successes that our students will experience this year may be influenced in untold ways by the part you will play. Please email us if you would like more information about the ways you can help Kinhaven. Thank you in advance for GETTING INVOLVED.
