"I have been involved as a volunteer with the arts for decades, and I'm familiar with many of the great cultural institutions of North America. They all share a common thread: visionary supporters who understand that an enduring institution is built on an enduring foundation—and that foundation is an endowment that ensures artistic vibrancy and financial stability for the short and long term."
—Mary Turner, Tafelmusik supporter and Board Member
The Tafelmusik Endowment Fund has been created to ensure that the values and excellence of Tafelmusik are preserved and strengthened. Tafelmusik is now laying the cornerstone for its own future—to build an endowment of $20 million by 2020.
A gift designated to the endowment fund will ensure generations of children will experience the thrill of live music performance for the first time. Many talented young musicians will experience the joy of playing on baroque instruments and be taught by the very best period performance artists. Our community and others around the world will continue to hear baroque and classical music performed with passion, imagination and unparalleled excellence. For decades to come, many thousands of people will be able to experience the joy of Tafelmusik in the same way that we hold so dear.
The funds designated to the endowment are invested permanently and a portion of the income is used year after year.
Tafelmusik is consistently recognized for its sound management and financial prudence. It has no accumulated deficit and operates on balanced budgets. You can be assured that your endowment gift will be carefully managed and permanently preserved.
