You can help create the future of performing arts at UPEI!

Your gift will support our students, refurbish our historic performance hall, and create new artistic spaces for students, faculty, and the community to enjoy for years to come.

Take your seat!

Sponsoring a seat in UPEI’s Dr. Steel Recital Hall or the new performing arts venue is a fantastic way to contribute to the legacy of performing arts in Prince Edward Island, and to leave your name as a supporter of our students, faculty, and programs.

In recognition of your $5,000 donation (payable over five years), a plaque engraved with your or your loved one’s name will remain forever on a seat in either the Dr. Steel Recital Hall or new performing arts venue.

“I really wanted to support the new performing arts centre because my two sons earned degrees from UPEI… one son actually met his wife at UPEI while she was pursuing her Bachelor of Music Education. I hope that someday their children will go to UPEI and get to sit in the seats that their grandparents have named!


Take your seat today!
