The Center for World Music is a nonprofit organization whose primary purpose is to foster intercultural awareness and understanding through in-depth encounters with the world’s performing arts traditions. To that end, we sponsor educational outreach, performances, and study abroad programs.

  • Volunteer or apprentice with our wonderful staff

  • Sponsor a program in a particular school
  • Donate for the purchase of an instrument

Your tax-deductible donation to the CWM will provide students throughout the San Diego Area with access to low-cost or free world music and performing arts programs. Our services target low-income communities and at-risk students, allowing your generous contribution to support those who need it the most. In addition, many corporations feel a sense of responsibility to give back to their communities and offer direct giving programs, foundations, sponsorship programs, in-kind donations, product donations, volunteer programs, or matching gift programs.
