What your tax-deductible donation makes possible

Your tax-deductible donation enables Passim to:
● Bring both well-known and emerging artists to perform in our legendary listening venue, in the community, and on the web.
● Develop new artists as they fine-tune their craft. The Passim Iguana Music Fund provides over $30,000 a year in grants to emerging artists who are making a difference.
● Teach the community. The Passim School of Music enrolls over 800 students each year, matching adult students of all backgrounds with instructors who are professional musicians.
● Promote diverse artists who truly inspire their audiences. Passim showcases music, song, and dance from the Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton, and other Celtic traditions in our monthly series and annual BCMFest event.
● Present free, outdoor music events throughout the city. Last year, BCMFest and Passim’s Harvard and Kendall Square Summer Series drew over 10,000 attendees.
● Help guarantee the health and efficiency of a truly legendary institution.
