The Stand Up To Cancer Canada Kate McGarrigle Fund (SU2C Canada–KMF) is a new collaborative program from Stand Up To Cancer Canada and Martha and Rufus Wainwright, the children of the late folk singer-songwriter Kate McGarrigle, who passed away from sarcoma in 2010. The Fund will celebrate the power of music as it relates to health and healing among cancer patients and raises funds for sarcoma research.

The SU2C Canada Kate McGarrigle Fund invites applications for a Music As Healing grant. The SU2C Canada–KMF Music As Healing program will provide up to 10 amateur or professional singer-songwriters and musicians who are going through cancer treatment or are a cancer survivor grants up to $2,500 (US) each to record and produce an original composition in a professional studio. The winning songs may be featured on a Music As Healing compilation album slated for release on digital outlets in late 2020, which would benefit the SU2C Canada–Kate McGarrigle Fund supporting sarcoma research. Martha Wainwright acts as Music Director for the SU2C Canada–KMF Music As Healing program.
