Some donors give small amounts every year; others contribute large sums from time to time. Every donor and every dollar makes a difference in students' lives by improving the quality and value of a Duquesne education.
There are a variety of ways that individuals and businesses can support the Mary Pappert School of Music:
Livestream Crowdfunding Campaign
Thanks to the generosity of many donors, the Mary Pappert School of Music met its initial goal to raise $50,000 to purchase and implement a state-of-the-art livestreaming system in 2022. This campaign continues to run in order to fund ongoing expenses related to staffing, maintenance, and system upgrades.
Student Organizations Support
Each semester, our student organizations have the opportunity to fundraise for various professional development activities. They use this money to offset the costs of conference fees, travel and lodging expenses, funding for industry professional master classes, etc.
Duquesne Day of Giving
Since 2016, Duquesne University has run an annual one-day campaign to promote public support of all of its organziations, departments, and initiatives. The campaign, which runs each February, has grown each year, totaling well over $2.5 million in gifts since its inception.
The Duquesne Fund
Your gift to the Duquense Fund can be designated specifically to the Mary Pappert School of Music.
