Benefits of Giving

Support Concerts and Events

Mannes presents more than 400 concerts and events a year that are open to the general public. Outside support is vital to the funding of these public programs, which make an invaluable contribution to the cultural life of the community.  As a Mannes donor, you not only receive preferred seating and personalized ticket handling for many events, you also have the opportunity to meet our students, faculty, guest artists, alumni, and your fellow donors.
