Giving Opportunities

Every year, the Idyllwild Arts community joins together to support our mission through tax-deductible donations. These gifts support every aspect of the school and programs, and are spent on students, faculty and facilities to strengthen our ability to provide the best possible arts experience for everyone that steps on campus.

You have options when you give to Idyllwild Arts.

The Annual Fund: Supporting Our Immediate Needs

Your gift to the Annual Fund supports every department, every program, every teacher, every student, every day.

  • Unrestricted gift: Let us decide how to use your gift. It will be put to use right away to support our mission.
  • Scholarships: Support talented and deserving students in either the Academy or Summer Program. Over half of our students receive financial aid – they need your help!
  • The Program or Department of Your Choice: Many alumni, friends and parents choose to direct their gifts to the program from which they or their student received their degree.

Learning and Performance Spaces: Improving and Maintaining Our Campus

Invest in physical spaces and tools to enhance the way our students learn and perform. Help us ensure our campus can exist as a 21st century learning environment. Contact us for more information

Endowment: The Gift that Gives Forever

Endowment funds work like a savings account. The investment amount remains in perpetuity – and Idyllwild Arts is able to use the interest earnings each year to support operations, program expenses, capital maintenance, financial aid, and much more. Contact us for more information.


Gifts of real estate, art, musical instruments, equipment, furnishings and other tangible property may be given outright or as pledges to Idyllwild Arts. Contact us for more information.
