The HARID Conservatory

Annual-Fund Campaign

Since its inception in 1987, HARID has been a tuition-free school. Nonetheless, the families of many students cannot afford the necessary fees for room and board. In fact, many of HARID’s distinguished alumni would have been unable to enroll—and eventually graduate—without financial aid. The funds used to provide such assistance are raised through HARID’s Annual-Fund Campaign

Each year, HARID seeks to raise $100,000 from individuals, private foundations, and corporations. Every dollar raised is used to offset the fees for student housing and meals.

Help ensure that gifted young dancers will continue to have access to HARID’s acclaimed professional training regardless of their families’ financial circumstances.
