At this moment in time, our young people are affected and in influenced in ways that none of us could have prepared them for.
Their young minds and hearts are witnessing and experiencing things that we, as adults could never have imagined as children.
One more reason why we continue to work to maintain this safe, inspiring and happy place called the Colorado Springs Conservatory (CSC). This is the reason why we are reaching out to you, our friends for your support at this time of giving.
As we enter our 24th year and sixth year in our new facility, we celebrate:
- Continued student success graduating 100% of our after-school students to the colleges, conservatories, and universities of their choosing
- Outstanding, engaged, and inspiring artist/mentors
- National recognition as an Exemplary School of Distinction from the Arts School Network
- Ongoing community arts advocacy and outreach with partners such as TESSA, Citizen Soldier Connection, Pikes Peak United Way, and the Western Street Breakfast to name a few
Maintaining A Positive Impact
There is no doubt that the Conservatory is making an impact in our students and families’ lives as well as the community.
“When the Conservatory expresses its magic by inspiring youth to invest in themselves, the entire community is uplifted because we are all connected,” says Lewis Keller CSC lead mentor.
SherryLynn Boyles of TESSA says of their recent collaboration,
“The Colorado Springs Conservatory created a program for TESSA’s 40th Anniversary Gala that inspired rave reviews and accolades from the almost 800 guests who attended. Most important, guests shared that they were moved by the performances that deepened their understanding of the impact that domestic violence has on families and on our community. Bravo to Linda Weise, the mentors and students!”
“Colorado Springs Conservatory and its mentors have changed me in a profound way. I have been inspired to unleash the very best version of myself possible and contribute to making a positive impact on my community.” Nathan Nims, CSC Student
Nearly a quarter of a century into our young life, the CSC needs your help now more than ever.
Our challenges to remain sustainable revolve around relevance and optimal service to our students, families and community. The Board of Directors and CSC leadership have taken steps to fully understand programming costs and are working to maintain affordable tuitions for students.
However, we will require support for:
- Funds for much needed scholarships
- Capital for Building Upgrades
- Enhancing and growing our team and mentors
Tuitions cover 60% of the cost to mentor a student here at the Conservatory.
Lessons, classes, outreaches, coachings, mentoring, and performance opportunities are all a part of student life here.
We Need Your Support!
We respectfully ask that you consider joining these key stakeholders who have already pledged a minimum of $1,000 each to ensure that the quality programs and opportunities the Conservatory affords its students remain accessible and affordable.
The results of your inspired giving and investment have been steady for the past 23 years.

We must work together to maintain such a special place as the Colorado Springs Conservatory for the sake of the students here and the profound positive impact that they will most certainly have on the world.
Let’s continue to afford our young people a place that belongs to them, a place that helps them to understand who they are and what they can contribute to society, a place called the Colorado Springs Conservatory!
