Community, Board and Volunteers
The Richmond Music School is operated by the Richmond Music School Society, a non-profit society, registered with the provincial government in 1980. A volunteer Board of Directors oversees the operation of the school and is responsible for its policies and directions. Approximately 80% of the annual budget is earned by the tuition fees. The remainder is from the Provincial government, City of Richmond and by donations from local businesses and individuals. In 2009, the Richmond Music School Endowment Fund was initiated, to give the school a solid base for its future.
You can help our society grow by becoming a voting member, volunteering on our Board of Directors, telling your friends and family about us, making a donation, or promoting us on social media. You can make a donation by sending dropping off cash or a cheque at any of our events, or contact us to make other arrangements. We would be most grateful for your support.
