Through Endowed Funds

Endowed funds can create a lasting legacy of support for specific aspects of the campus music experience, such as providing scholarships and affordable music lessons, expanding the instrument library, bringing world-class performers to campus, and more. Whatever your generosity, our gift officers can help you identify an existing fund for your contribution, such as the Laudie Porter Memorial Fund, which is accepting donations in memory of former president and music professor David Porter, who passed away on March 25. They can also talk with you about establishing a new fund. Contact us at 800-492-2275 to learn more.
