American Society

The American Society for the Royal Academy of Music (ASRAM) is a non-profit organization based in New York that supports the work of the Royal Academy of Music in the UK.  

The ASRAM is a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations made by U.S. taxpayers are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by the IRS. The ASRAM Board periodically reviews grant proposals from the Royal Academy of Music and distributes funds to support it. 

Supporting the ASRAM

If you are a U.S tax payer, then please do consider supporting the American Society for the Royal Academy of Music. You will help realise the dreams of some of the world’s most talented young musicians and play your part in shaping the future of music. Whether you are based in London or the U.S., we would be delighted to give you special insights into the Academy’s work nurturing the musicians of the future and to involve you in the wonderful world of music the Academy has to offer.
