The Inspiring Philanthropy of Marta S. Weeks

Immediate past chair and senior member of the University of Miami Board of Trustees, Marta S. Weeks is a multifaceted philanthropist, loyal patron of the arts, community leader, speaker, and retired Episcopal priest.

A member of the prestigious Iron Arrow honor society, she has provided primary support for several transformative facilities and programs at the Frost School of Music, including the Marta and Austin Weeks Music Library and Technology Center, the L. Austin Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, the Marta and Austin Weeks Music School Fund, and the Marta and L. Austin Weeks Music Scholarship Endowment, which supports more than 20 students each year.  Her generous gifts honor her late husband, L. Austin Weeks and the entire Weeks Family. Her generous contributions have also funded many other scholarships and priorities throughout the University of Miami, including endowed chairs in the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Miller School of Medicine, and College of Arts and Sciences.

Marta Weeks was honored at the Frost School of Music’s 2009 Winter Wonderful gala where she received the Frost Legacy Award.  Recently remarried, she and her husband Karl Wulf and their extended families are frequent attendees at music concerts, master classes, lectures, musical theatre productions and other arts-related events on the University of Miami campus.
