WMCT Foundation

The Women’s Musical Club of Toronto Foundation (Charitable Business Number 86727 0647 RR0001) was established to provide stable financing for the continuation and expansion of the WMCT’s projects that support the development of emerging Canadian classical musicians. In 2001, the WMCT transferred its designated funds to the Foundation’s endowment fund. The Foundation is seeking to grow the endowment fund with current gifts from members and supporters and with future gifts from bequests. The Foundation has broad objects relating to fostering classical music in Canada and has chosen to fulfil its mission by providing funds to the WMCT.

The Foundation currently funds:

  • sponsorship of concerts in the WMCT Music in the Afternoon concert series, which provides performance opportunities for young Canadian chamber musicians;
  • annual WMCT undergraduate scholarships at the Faculty of Music of the University of Toronto and The Glenn Gould School, The Royal Conservatory of Music;
  • the WMCT’s Career Development Award; and
  • a graduate fellowship in performance at the Faculty of Music of the University of Toronto.

“It is one thing to possess a talent that leads you to a performance oriented profession in music; yet sadly, it is a whole different thing to actually gain the chance to “get one’s feet wet” on the performance stage. Thank God the WMCT has recognized and helped to support the young professional musicians of Canada over the last century and provided that which is the most important thing of all – a venue to showcase one’s talent. I for one remember fondly my recital in the WMCT series and knew well to appreciate its prestigious importance. It has been one of the cornerstones of my career.”– Michael Schade
