The Augustus Juilliard Society

The Augustus Juilliard Society

The Augustus Juilliard Society honors and recognizes those who have included a bequest or other type of planned gift arrangement for The Juilliard School in their long-range financial plans. By including a charitable gift to The Juilliard School in your financial planning, you too can help perpetuate the School's tradition of excellence in the arts, just as Augustus D. Juilliard did in 1919, when his will made the largest single bequest until that time for the advancement of music.

Members are acknowledged in listings and invited to an annual event at Juilliard. If you have already named The Juilliard School in your planning, we hope you will let us know. Those who have notified Juilliard that the school is named a beneficiary in their long-term plans are automatically considered to be members. The Augustus Juilliard Society has over 300 members, including those who wish to remain anonymous. It would be an honor to welcome you as a member of the Augustus Juilliard Society and to thank you for your future gift, which will help ensure that a Juilliard education continues to be available to promising young artists the world over.

To let us know that you have made a bequest, beneficiary designation, or other planned gift to Juilliard, call Lori Padua at (212) 799-5000, ext. 7152 or email
