Ways to Give

The Grand Teton Music Festival has been bringing the finest in classical music to the valley of Jackson Hole since 1962. Since then, we have grown into one of the nation’s finest music festivals encompassing a summer Festival, winter concert series and education and outreach programs.

We rely on the generous support of our donors, business sponsors, and volunteers to produce the magnificent concerts and education programs that increase the quality of life for those who vacation in this beautiful mountain setting, and for those who are fortunate enough to call Jackson their home.

Planned Giving

The Sullivan Society

In 2013, GTMF was the recipient of a generous and humbling bequest from the estate of Pike and Sue Sullivan. The gift brought the Festival’s endowment funds to more than $10 million, and we have created The Sullivan Society in their honor. This society commemorates benefactors who create bequests, charitable trusts, and other planned gifts that leave lasting legacies for the Festival.

Members of our Sullivan Society, play a key role in ensuring our long-term growth and fiscal stability. If you have also included us in your estate plans or would like to discuss planned giving, please contact Anna Dobbins, Director of Development at ann@gtmf.org or 307.732.9967.
