The Princeton Festival is committed to producing music at its best with world-class artists. To achieve this we depend on the support of individuals and institutions in New Jersey and, increasingly, in Pennsylvania and New York.

Since its inception in 2004, strong interest in the company has enabled it to grow rapidly through ticket sales and contributions. As is the case with most arts organizations, revenues from ticket sales cover less than half of production costs. We continue to rely on contributions to make up the difference.

We invite you to take part in the future of this exciting company by making a tax-deductible donation. Thank you for your support!
