Support DePaul School of Music

Your gift to the School of Music helps us:
  • Create scholarships:  The need for funds designated specifically for scholarships is ever-present and will continue to be of the highest priority as we seek to attract the most talented students to the School of Music. 
  • Enhance facilities and address equipment needs:  These contributions empower students and faculty with cutting-edge resources, fostering an enriched learning environment that promotes musical excellence and creativity.
  • Recruit and retain faculty:  The School of Music has attracted stellar faculty, many drawn from Chicago’s elite musical organizations such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Lyric Opera. Additional funding provides the opportunity to add more such luminaries to our faculty.
  • Provide new programming opportunities:  From bringing a visiting artist to campus, to creating a new ensemble and more performance opportunities, to sending an ensemble on a national tour—all of these activities (and more) require funding and resources which may not be provided by the s​chool’s annual budget.
