Support the Festival

To keep admission to the Paley Music Festival by voluntary contribution, we rely on an all-volunteer staff, and especially on the generosity of donors to cover costs such as moving the Bluethner piano, travel expenses, honorariums to the musicians, and copying the programs. 

You can make a contribution at the performances by cash, check, or credit card. Contribute now by visiting our Box Office.

Your generosity is truly appreciated! The Alexander Paley Music Festival, Inc. is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible as provided by law.
