Dear Friends and Supporters of the San Jose International Piano Competition:

Did you know that every year, the Competition facilitates educational and performance opportunities for hundreds of up and coming pianists, not only from the Bay Area but also from dozens of countries around the world?  We take our mission of providing excellence and education very seriously, particularly as it translates into helping to create and discover the next generation of great concert artists.

As our Competition remains the only international organization of its type in Northern California, centrally located in our beautiful city of San Jose, we find ourselves in a unique position to continue evolving into a major arts organization in the midst of an emerging metropolis.

In order to maintain our high standards, as evidenced by our continued relationships with some of the world’s finest concert artists and conservatory professors, we need your help.  Our organization is a registered nonprofit organization with an all-volunteer board of directors, who exist due to the generous provisions of both public and private grants and contributions.

Won’t you consider making a tax-deductable contribution for the future of live music, high art and culture, as well as an investment in the good of our community?  We hope to be able to list you as a proud member of our donors on our website, where the ranks of our generous sponsors are listed as follows:  President’s Circle $10,000+, Platinum Sponsors $5,000-$10,000, Gold Sponsors $2,000-5,000, Silver Sponsors $500-$1,000, or Bronze Sponsors $500 and under.

We are both humbled and proud with what we’ve accomplished through the years, and we know you will want to join with us in fulfilling our mission of providing excellence and education in piano performance and competition, uniting yourselves in our efforts to help the next generation of young people fulfill their highest aspirations and dreams, as well as contributing to our communities, and ultimately, the world.

Thank you for your generous support,

San Jose International Piano Competition
