Support VanderCook

Alumni Giving

Welcome to the VanderCook College of Music Alumni Association! The purpose of the alumni association is to promote support for the college; stimulate and encourage loyalty, inform alumni of activities, achievements, and needs; establish and maintain fellowship; and promote active participation of our membership.

Anyone who has completed coursework or holds a degree of any kind from VanderCook College of Music is considered a member of the Alumni Association. The Alumni Association is no longer collecting dues and we are excited to be launching our new Leadership Circles program. The College needs our support now more than ever, and our new giving program allows every donor to choose how their gift supports the College! Please read about the options below to learn more about how you can help VanderCook College of Music!

Legacy Circle

VanderCook thrives because of the support we receive from our loyal alumni. The Legacy Scholarship is awarded to students related to or who have been taught by a VanderCook alum. The scholarship is $1,000 and is renewable each year.

Sponsor Circle

The Alumni Association strives to be a visible part of the VanderCook community by actively contributing to various events and activities throughout the year. A donation in this area would fund activities like the dessert table at VanderGiving, hole sponsors for golf events, matching contributions towards the graduate class gift, and more.

Friends Circle

Whether it be through a generous donation or sending along interested students. VanderCook alumni honor the rich VanderCook tradition of excellence by supporting the college in various ways. This unrestricted donation will help us mail recruitment materials, attend MEA conferences, and help with the general operation of the college.

When you make your gift, please select "other" and then add Legacy Circle, Sponsor Circle or Friends Circle into the box to let us know how to best use your gift!


The mission of VanderCook College of Music is to enrich the lives of present and future generations by developing uniquely skilled music teachers who exhibit strong character, professionalism, and a commitment to excellence.
