Interlochen Arts Academy: Help Me Go!

$7,950 of $7,250 goal

Raised by 153 people in 48 months

I've been accepted into the Interlochen Arts Academy this school year for my songwriting, but my family can't afford to pay the tuition.

Please donate whatever you can spare so that maybe I can spend this school year learning about what I love with songwriters and artists just like me!

WE'VE REACHED THE GOAL.
THANKYOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED.

I guess dreams do come true sometimes. I don't know if I can ever properly express my gratitude to everyone who has donated. I might have to write another song! This year is going to be an incredible and transformative experience thanks to the generosity of all of you.

THANKYOU!

Almost there! I feel like crying because I never thought this could actually happen. Thankyou so much to all the Interlochen Alumni who have donated! I'm absolutely stunned by the generosity of the Interlochen community. Just a little under 250 bucks left.

I went to Interlochen last year after going to the camp and applying, thinking that I wouldn't get it, and it was the best thing that's ever happened to me. I'm not going back this year because I didn't get enough financial aid, so I get what you're going through. You are extremely talented, and I hope that you have a great year.
