Support the Department of Music

UC San Diego's Department of Music is more than an academic unit—it is a community of musicians and scholars collaborating to push the boundaries of music creation and performance, and to situate musical creativity in the context of our time.

Private support is critical in helping the Department of Music sustain its level of excellence and to maintain its world-class facilities, including our technologically advanced infrastructure and our exceptional concert hall, designed by one of the most distinguished acousticians in the world.

Your philanthropic gift offers an important endorsement of our research and pedagogical aspirations at the University and in the greater San Diego community. Numerous naming and giving opportunities are available to support our innovative research and creative projects and to fund essential programmatic and operational needs as we enter an unprecedented phase of growth and discovery.

Thank you for playing a critical role in our Department’s future.
