The Oberlin Conservatory 150th Anniversary Fundraising Challenge


150 Things You Never Knew A Conservatory Student Needed

Oberlin Conservatory is 150 years old! No other conservatory in North America can tout that milestone. It’s a grand anniversary, and one that Oberlin is celebrating in grand ways. $150 grand, that is. We have a challenge here. A challenge to raise $150,000 for the Conservatory Student Support Fund. 


It takes broad and creative support to help students reach the professional goals they envision for themselves—and that we at Oberlin envision for each one of them. Oberlin Conservatory takes that challenge very much to heart. Each year, the Conservatory Student Support Fund provides awards, small and not-so-small, for things musicians need outside the classroom—things like travel to auditions, competitions, master classes, and festivals; insurance for an instrument when shipping it off for repair; competition application fees; and those little emergencies that happen at the worst possible time in a student's life.


We’ll be posting a selection of the 150 stories about Oberlin students who have received this kind of help. Read them at #ObieConGive150.


We’re up for the challenge. Are you?


This fund has been created because we recognize the need for support beyond scholarships—support that is so crucial to Conservatory students’ success. This fund will be endowed to provide support in perpetuity. We hope you will consider making a gift to the Conservatory Student Support Fund.
