The Aeolian is a beacon in The Old East Village and an internationally known legendary venue.  It’s been a tough year with the economy, stresses on our streets and endless construction.  This has had a big impact on our operations and we need your help.  Every donation counts no matter how small!

The Aeolian team and community thanks you in advance for your consideration.

giving to aeolian hall

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.
