Every year, individual donors make generous gifts to the Cleveland Institute of Music’s Annual Fund. The Annual Fund supports the transformative music education of CIM students, empowering them to fulfill their dreams and potential. Through nearly 600 performances at CIM and hundreds more throughout Northeast Ohio, CIM is an integral part of Cleveland’s thriving arts community. Be the future of classical music by making your gift today!
