Your Support in Action
As part of a Heifetz 2021 Scholarship Team, you and your fellow members will help to fulfill our mission of training exceptional young musicians to become well-rounded communicative artists. Aside from your financial support, your involvement will strengthen the social bonds of our community by providing a forum for individuals to come together through their shared love and support of the arts. You will contribute to expanding diversity in the Shenandoah Valley by supporting the Institute and its global outreach, which attracts students and faculty from across the globe. And with the Institute’s operations and programming partly conducted online for 2021, team members may join from anywhere in the world.
We always treasure your support, but in this moment in particular your generosity will help us face the task ahead with all our energy. Though the challenges presented by the global pandemic cannot be understated, with your help we are determined to continue the Institute’s vital role in shaping the lives and future careers of young musicians who have the power to Communicate – Engage – Inspire even in these trying times.

Want to help, but don’t know enough people who might give to form a team?
Consider Team Heifetz – a pool of people just like you, who want to participate, but who aren’t sure they can pull together enough people to make a full team on their own. This team will be routed through the Institute, which will either assign you to an existing team that needs you, or pool you together with nine others like you.
If you would like to lead or join a team, or have any further questions, please fill out the contact form below or email the Scholarship Team Coordinator, Andrew Green at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
