June 21, 2017 was an historic day for the Kaufman Music Center community. After starting Special Music School in 1996 with only 30 students, we watched our first seniors graduate from what is now a school of over 300 students who get to pursue their passion for music during the regular school day.

In honor of this momentous occasion, we are thrilled to announce that a generous donor has issued us with a 20th Anniversary Match Challenge to raise $100,000 before the new school year starts.This means that any gift you give before August 31 will be DOUBLED up to $100,000. We need your help to match every last dollar! We hope you will take advantage of this exciting chance to have your generosity go twice as far for our programs.
