Walden’s life-changing programs can only happen with the generous support of donors, both individual and organizational. This support offsets operating expenses and provides financial aid to the many deserving students who otherwise could not afford to attend. The gap between tuition and program costs must be filled annually through the philanthropy of people like you. Your gift to the Walden School is crucial and has an immediate impact on our students.

Every gift makes a big difference. You help put more music in the world!
