We support music and arts advancement opportunities for youth

The mandate of The Minstrel Foundation for Music & Arts Advancement is to support the learning experience of economically challenged children and youth at risk. We support programs that benefit inner city youth and new immigrant communities within Toronto and the neighbouring areas.


A professional quality music education has proven to increase a child's IQ resulting in higher academic performance in both math and science. Further benefits include improved speech and reading abilities in addition to the enhancement of teamwork skills and personal self discipline.


Through the Minstrel Foundation, kids from our inner city neighbourhoods can take music lessons throughout the school year in a number of programs, attend music camps during school breaks and in the summer and further their music education at the advanced level through a Minstrel Foundation scholarship.


“Music gives a soul to the universe,
wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to others”
