We still have a ways to go to make budget this year and be prepared for another year of giving “The gift of Music, the gift of community”.  We thank all of those who have and continue to support our mission and vision.  We’ve made great progress in our campaign goals.

It’s been a challenging year for most non-profits in our country.  many haven’t made it through.  with the current economic challanges, Increased costs of operation, the stresses on our streets, covid outbreaks and continuous construction, our audience levels have been impacted.  Even the smallest donation can help us.  Consider a monthly donation on Canadahelps.org as an option.

the aeolian is so grateful for its community of donors over the past nearly 20 years.  its volunteers and donors are the reason it continues to serve its community.

At Aeolian Hall, we celebrate the generosity of our donors and volunteers.

We thrive because of the thoughtful contributions of many. We are humbled by your kindness and pleased that you share our mission.

We treat every gift as special, no matter the size. A small gift for today, a larger gift for the year, or a long term pledge to ensure a sustained legacy all play a role in in building a better community.

Vital programs like El Sistema Aeolian – our free after-school music program for children and youth who do have access to affordable music education – are shaping the lives of our next generation of leaders and philanthropists: our participants care about the community, the environment, and the world they live in: just like you.
