Sistema Winnipeg is fully dependent on the support of our generous donors. Each year, the WSO relies entirely on donations from individuals, companies, and partners to make up their contribution to the program.

Your contribution will not only share the gift of music with a child in our community, it will also make you an integral part of the Sistema Winnipeg community. The philosophy of Sistema is that by working and playing together, we can change the world; your financial support is one of the many ways in which you can play your part.

It takes a village…

There are many ways you can get involved in and support Sistema Winnipeg and our students:

  • $3,000 supports one student for an entire year
  • $1,000 buys a cello
  • $500 buys a flute, trumpet, or viola
  • $300 buys a violin

Every dollar counts!


Instrument Donations

Do you have an instrument laying around the house? You can clear out the clutter and help Sistema Winnipeg at the same time!


Sistema Winnipeg is seeking string instruments (violin, viola, cello & double bass). Please contact Jeffrey Acosta, Sistema Coordinator, ( or 204.949.3995) to make arrangements or with any questions. Charitable tax receipts will be issued for the market value of the instrument, less any repair costs.

Winds, Brass & Percussion

St. John’s Music is the official wind, brass and percussion instrument donation partner and drop-off point for Sistema Winnipeg. You can conveniently visit their Portage Avenue store during business hours to drop-off your instrument donation. Once we have a chance to assess the condition of the instrument, a charitable tax receipt will be issued for market value of the instrument, less any repair costs.
