Every Gift Makes A Difference

"CMW has changed the way I think about music and the way music can make us think. I am proud to know that my gift makes these performances, these conversations, these lessons happen."
– CMW supporter

For over twenty years, Community MusicWorks has built a musical community with the conviction that arts experiences are vital to community health, and that for young people – especially those growing up with limited opportunities – these experiences can be the catalyst to imagining and growing possibility-rich futures.

Youth Music Program Support
Our free music education programs provide our students with a foundation in string instrument training while encouraging them to explore their own musical interests and creative inspirations.

Concert Sponsorship
CMW offers over 30 free concerts each season throughout Providence and the surrounding region. Performances include MusicWorks Collective concerts, which showcase our Resident Musicians, Fellows, and guest artists. Our student performances provide an opportunity to applaud and celebrate their year long work and accomplishments.

Recognizing Resident Musicians and Fellows
A special way to connect is to provide Annual or Endowed Support of a Resident Musician or Fellow. Your gift will support the performance and education work of our faculty, and allow CMW to offer competitive salaries to attract and keep these talented musicians in our community.

Planned Giving
You can support the legacy of CMW by designating CMW as a beneficiary in your will. Please contact Katie Sklar at to learn more about this opportunity.
