Whether you’re a musician, concert-goer, or avid music listener, Merit’s Associate Board welcomes young professionals who believe in the transformative power of music education.
The Merit Associate Board (Merit AB) is committed to furthering the Merit School of Music’s mission to remove barriers to high-quality music education. We are a group of Chicago-area young professionals who volunteer our time, expertise, and resources to support Merit and its students. Associate Board members strive to develop themselves as model philanthropic leaders and next-generation advocates for the musical arts.
Members support the school by:
- Collaborating with students to enhance their personal growth and help prepare them for the future
- Growing our Associate Board by bringing diverse perspectives and skills to Merit
- Working to develop new sources of support to meet Merit’s mission and provide financial aid to students
- Increasing public awareness of Merit by serving as ambassadors for its mission and impact
