The Miami International GuitART Festival (MIGF) is organized and sponsored by the Florida International University School of Music, which is a not for profit public institution. The MIGF aims to bring world-class musicians, teachers, students, and luthiers together with the audiences in Miami for public concerts, masterclasses, and lectures, as well as a composition competition and luthiers expo.

We would be grateful if you consider contributing to the festival with a tax-deductible gift and help us match the required dollar-to-dollar fundraising for our grants, including the NEA, Florida State, Miami-Dade County, and Knight Foundation grants. All contributions, whether large or small, will help us continue to expand future festivals, provide scholarships and prize awards. As a donor, your gift is a direct investment in advancing arts in Miami, as well as in the development of new repertoire for guitar.

In appreciation of your support, the MIGF offers a variety of benefits available at various levels as indicated below.
