Give to the Desautels Faculty of Music

Your support helps artistic trailblazers flourish

When you give to the Desautels Faculty of Music, you support future generations of performers, composers, educators and industry leaders. And you do so much more. Your generous support can help realize exciting initiatives that are catalysts for artistic excellence throughout our community and the world.

The University of Manitoba’s Front and Centre campaign is the largest philanthropic investment in the history of our province. The campaign’s goal is to raise $500 million to support strategic priorities throughout the university, including the Taché Arts Project, the most ambitious and influential development in the history of the Desautels Faculty of Music. The Taché Arts Project will create Canada’s most advanced centre for post-secondary music studies and collaboration – a vibrant, connected complex filled with new spaces and tools for students preparing to illuminate stages here and around the world. Designate your gift to the Taché Arts Project and you will be joining our generous Front and Centre donors who are investing in this transformative campaign.

You can also direct your donation toward scholarships and bursaries that help music students pursue their dreams. More than 170 students receive assistance from these programs every year, thanks to the generosity of our donors.

Your gift will support the next generations of artists and performers who will enrich the cultural stage for our city, our province and our country. To learn more about opportunities to create a profound impact, please contact:

“The award allowed me to give my full attention to my studies without feeling the financial pressures as a full-time student. It also opened possibilities to work in the community, outside school, to put my education into action in a real world setting. Without this support, I would not have been able to take full advantage of my experiences.”
