The Great Give 2018 - May 1 - 2

Elm City Chamber Fest is participating in the Great Give 2018, a 36-hour fundraising event sponsored by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. A donation to ECCF during the Great Give will go towards our student scholarship fund. This fund enables all interested music students the opportunity to attend ECCF each summer, and to participate in a remarkable two weeks of exceptional training. All funds that are donated during this event will be matched by a generous grant from Bank of America for their Performing Arts Challenge, in addition to qualifying ECCF to win other various incentive prizes and grants.  A little donation during this event goes a long way! Thank you very much for your support!

With your help, ECCF was able to raise over $20,000, including a $1,000 Early Bird Prize! Thank you for your support and donations!

Student tuition provides only a portion of what is needed to ensure ECCF’s continued success. Your contribution to Elm City ChamberFest helps us attract the best and brightest faculty and young musicians to the school and to invite critically acclaimed guest artists to perform at the festival

There is more than one way to help!


We are so appreciative of our friends and donors who support ECCF students year after year. Several of our students have benefited from the generosity of our donors and new musical experiences have been created because so many choose to make ECCF a priority in their giving.

Becoming a sponsor of Elm City ChamberFest is one of the many ways businesses and organizations can support the festival. 


We invite you to join a list of respected businesses, retail establishments and service providers who advertise in our festival program - a program that is distributed at our 5 concerts throughout our summer festival.


With a small staff, ECCF relies a great deal on the help of volunteers, ranging from office clerical work to picking up pizzas for our student pizza parties or ushering at any of our 5 concerts.

Other ways you can help:

  • Donate unwanted music stands, sheet music or musical instruments.
  • Host a post concert reception
  • Provide pre-concert meals for our faculty and guest artists
  • Donate student snacks, pizza or bottled water
  • ‍Host a visiting guest artist
  • Donate your unwanted office furniture
  • Host a fundraising event
  • Donate flowers for a faculty performance    

Have an idea? Contact us! We’d love to hear from you!
