Funding for the Alberta Summer Suzuki Institute comes primarily from fees paid by student families and teacher trainees.  In addition the Society for Talent Education offers administrative support to ASSI.

In order to keep the cost of programs affordable to families and teachers taking training courses we rely of donations and sponsorships. The Society for Talent Education is a non-profit, charitable organization. Donations and Sponsorships of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.


Donations go primarily to our scholarship fund which offers financial support to students who would otherwise not be able to attend ASSI (for information on our scholarship program please see scholarships).

To donate to our scholarship fund please contact us at


We offer a number of concert and workshop events at ASSI that we depend on sponsorships to offer.  For a list of events and sponsorship options please click this link. Sponsorship outline ASSI 2018

We also have several programs that could be sponsored.  If you are interested in sponsoring a program please contact the Institute Director at
