Support Merit


Merit School of Music creates opportunities for Chicago-area youth to grow musically and personally through accessible, high quality music education, regardless of economic circumstance.  More than 50% of our annual budget is allocated to financial aid, scholarships, low-cost instrument rental, and the Alice S. Pfaelzer Tuition-free Conservatory.

Your generous tax-deductible gift helps ensure that Merit continues to transform young lives through music.
