The Value of Your Support

It is through the generous support of donors like you by which the School of Music at the University of Minnesota Duluth is able to bring inspiring programming, respected and skilled professors and state-of-the-art venues to UMD. With your help, we strive to provide opportunities for all our students to develop and refine their talents to become the next leaders of the arts community.

The Department of Music takes great pride in our students, faculty, donors, and friends:
1. We believe in the potential of our students to change the world;
2. We beileve in the talents of our faculty and the strength of our programs;
3. We believe in the unwavering commitment of our donors.

A gift to the UMD Department of Music has a profound impact on emerging artists. Your gift decreases the heavy financial burden, allowing students to focus on developing their skills, achieving their goals, and producing beautiful and thrilling works of art.Your gift can benefit students in perpetuity. With an endowed scholarship, you can create a fund that is invested each year, producing annual income used for scholarship aid. The principal remains intact, ensuring that the fund continues to benefit students long after the initial gift is made.

A Circle of Giving

Many of the scholarships at UMD have been established by those grateful graduates who received scholarships themselves. Scholarship recipients often become donors in the future! The UMD School of Fine Arts provides several ways of giving support to our students. You may contribute to an existing scholarship on a one time, or recurring basis. You may also develop your own scholarship with specific criteria, which may be funded on a year-to-year basis or endowed to exist in perpetuity.
