Two Ways to Support Walker West

As you consider your giving, we have two opportunities you can support at this time:

 Sustain Walker West’s programs serving people along the age spectrum, from infants to elders. We serve 280 students per week and 5,700 program participants each year. Help us finish the year strong and enter 2024 with a head start!

Support The Power of Music to Heal our Community Campaign. We are excited about our shared future as a world-class cultural destination at our newly acquired building at 650 Marshall Avenue in St. Paul. We plan to expand access to more students, especially those who are African American or low-income, and build infrastructure to support our growth organizationally. To date, we have raised $11 million toward our total goal of $19.5 million. Make a gift or pledge today to support our growth! (Note: please note your intention as a campaign gift to direct it this way.)

Walker West enthusiastically accepts gifts from Donor Advised Funds, stock donation, estate and planned gifts, and IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions*. If you want more information on how you can make a gift, contact Amelia Colwell at 319-415-5078 or by email at

Our music school is registered with the state of Minnesota as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to support our mission and operations are tax-deductible.

P.S. If you are at least 70½ years of age on the day of your gift, you can transfer funds directly from your IRA, and the IRA Charitable Rollover enables you to make an income tax-free transfer of any amount up to $100,000 per year.

Make your gift online

We accept electronic donations in two ways, via PayPal and/or our GIVEMN page. You do not need to have an account on either site. Gifts can be made with credit or debit cards.
