Think your single, small contribution can’t make a difference?
Music Associates is a group of community members who pool their financial resources into a single fund benefiting students of the School of Music. Enhancing the opportunities for music students at WSU is the sole purpose of Music Associates. None of the projects we support are funded by state or municipal allocations, so without private funding, they simply would not occur.
Please join us in this effort to maintain the tradition of musical excellence at Wichita State University.
Contributions are tax-deductible. Giving levels are:
Guest Artist $500-$999
Select "Music Associates"
