Why become a nonprofit?

With nonprofit status, we are eligible for state and federal support, as well as tax-deductible individual gifts. Our fundraising and grant writing will be focused on growing our most impactful endeavors, from educational outreach to new commissions.

Three years after our founding, we became an LLC in 2012, allowing the organization freedom and flexibility. With today's nonprofit status comes an obligation to better the music landscape for our audience, for students, and for future musicians. It also allows Akropolis to create an internal organizational structure to ensure we do our work for years to come.

Your support will help Akropolis by...

  • ‌Enhancing our educational outreach efforts, from kindergarten through conservatory, including our new collegiate focused career advancement program, Akropolis WORKS, centered upon creative entrepreneurship and generating sustainable career options for future musicians.
  • Deepening our commitment to community engagement with more programs at libraries, churches, art museums, area businesses, and other community centers.
  • Strengthening our performances and new music advocacy, including new commissions, studio releases, video production, and new additions to our growing sheet music catalog — the Akropolis Collection.
