Canadian Friends of Interlochen

Founded by a group of Canadian alumni, Canadian Friends of Interlochen serves as a platform for Canadian citizens to support Interlochen and its mission.

Since Interlochen's founding in 1928, Canadian students and supporters have been integral parts of our community. Today, more than 2,000 Interlochen alumni live, work, and advocate for the arts across Canada.

Support Student Scholarships

One of our greatest priorities is supporting the young artists of Interlochen Arts Camp and Interlochen Arts Academy from around the world. That's why all gifts made to Canadian Friends of Interlochen support student scholarships.

Canadian Friends of Interlochen (BN 84104 4811 RR0001) is a registered Canadian charity and provides tax benefits to alumni, parents, and friends in Canada who make gifts to Interlochen.
