The Women’s Auxiliary of the Music Academy of the West’s fundraising efforts generate net proceeds exceeding $200,000 annually to help support the full-scholarship program at the Academy. The scholarships enable 140 outstanding fellows from around the world to study in Santa Barbara each summer. The Auxiliary actively supports the Music Academy in the numerous ways shown below.
