Named Gift Opportunities

Named Gift Opportunities


Since 1981, the Boston Early Music Festival has consistently presented the very best Early Music artists on the Boston and Cambridge concert stages, and our 2022-2023 Concert Season is no exception! Our groundbreaking work is only achievable thanks to your financial support. Income from ticket sales covers less than half the cost of presenting these magnificent programs, and CD sales do not begin to cover the costs of recording our world-class opera and vocal productions. We rely on many thoughtful and generous friends like you to help make ends meet.

You can provide vital leadership support with a Named Gift—opportunities start at just $500. When you support BEMF with a Named Gift, you invest directly in our music in a way that has special significance. Not only do Named Gifts help provide the crucial resources necessary to present a full season of extraordinary performances and to share our productions with the world through recording projects, but they are doubly meaningful in that they convey a clear message of thanks to your favorite artists, ensembles, and directors—that their work means something to you.

Please review our 2022-2023 Concert Season, and if there is an ensemble, soloist, orchestra member, or director to whom you would like to send this message of support, please consider making a Named Gift to BEMF as their sponsor. Donors receive prominent acknowledgement in our concert programs or recording booklets, invitations to receptions, and special thanks from the artists you sponsor.

To make a Named Gift via our website, use our standard donation form and enter “NGO” and the name of the artist, ensemble, or project you wish to sponsor in the “Dedication Honoree Name” field
