WMI programs are made possible, in part, by public and private funds from:

National Endowment for the Arts, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the Howard Gilman Foundation. WMI PLUS and WMI PLUS At Home experiences are supported by a grant from Con Edison.

WMI gladly accepts donations from Donor Advised Funds, is set up to receive corporate employee matching contributions, and also has a brokerage account that welcomes gifts in the form of securities, stocks, and/or bonds. Please contact Gaby Sappington at gaby@worldmusicinstitute.org for more details on these opportunities to support WMI.
