Spring Giving Day for Festival Hill


On Tuesday, April 17, from midnight to midnight, Round Top Festival Institute will launch its annual spring 24-hour fundraising challenge. The goal of the "Give2RTFInstitute" Spring Giving Day Campaign is to raise $30,000 to help fund the 2018 Scholarship Fund.

On June 3, 2018, 91 of the most advanced music students from around the country and the world will arrive at Round Top Festival Institute for six weeks of study during the 2018 Round Top Music Festival. They will be mentored by 40 of the most outstanding faculty and work with seven renowned conductors of international stature. Click here to view the 2018 young artists who will form the Texas Festival Orchestra.

Each year, $6,000 needs to be raised for each student attending the Institute. This year, the 2018 Scholarship Fund requires $546,000 to fully support the young artists. Efforts to secure resources from several sources are ongoing. This Spring Giving Day Campaign will fund 5 scholarships.

During the fundraising challenge on April 17, all gifts will go to support scholarships, and every dollar will help us reach our campaign goal of $30,000.


Donations can be made online or by phone with a credit card (979-249-3129). We are also accepting pledges by phone. Checks may be made payable to The James Dick Foundation and mailed to Round Top Festival Institute, PO Box 89, Round Top, TX 78954. Indicate "for April 17 Spring Giving Day."
