There are many ways to support the School of Music at California State University, Fullerton.
Attending our concerts is a wonderful start. Memberships in the Music Associates and the MAMM Alliance for the Performing Arts are also significant steps. Patrons, members, parents, campus colleagues, and friends near and far often choose to support the School of Music even more deeply, in various ways.
Many of the Cal State Fullerton School of Music's supporters choose to donate toward scholarship support for music majors. The benefits to donors are the opportunity to meet and become acquainted with the student(s) they are supporting, and to hear them perform in our ensembles and concerts.
Music major scholarship support has multiple benefits for music majors. In some cases, it simply makes the difference between being able to afford going to school and not. Scholarship support helps music majors spend less of their time in menial part-time jobs, and more time in deeply immersing themselves in their passion for music through the many necessary hours of practice and study. Scholarship support also has a strong emotional component, as it shows music majors that someone believes in them enough to help them work toward their goals and succeed. Our donors' generosity truly creates the musical performers, composers, and educators of tomorrow.
Many other types of donor opportunities exist as well. Namings of unique rooms and ensembles are available, as are professorships and principle chairs in our ensembles. Contributions toward the purchase of specific musical instruments important to the School of Music are also feasible.
