2018-19 Report

Donate Now

This year marked the beginning of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s second century of musical excellence and innovation, made possible by our unparalleled community of students, faculty, staff, and supporters.

On behalf of the SFCM Board of Trustees, we are pleased to share with you highlights of our school’s 101st year, all made possible by your support. In 2018-19, we set a new record for the number of Collegiate students enrolled, and at the same time awarded more scholarship dollars than any year before. With the help of donors, our average scholarship award increased by 5% to cover 57% of tuition. We charted the course for our future by breaking ground on our new student residence and performing arts facility, the Ute and William K. Bowes, Jr. Center for Performing Arts, which will transform our students’ experience and our next 100 years upon opening in Fall 2020.

All of us at SFCM are deeply grateful for and inspired by your generosity. Your support enables our students and faculty to achieve their best and helps us make music education accessible for the next generation. Thank you.
