Capital & Endowment Giving

Sustaining classical music for generations

Endowment Funds

Endowment funds benefit the Music Academy in perpetuity. Each year, a portion of the earned interest of the invested gift is used to defray operating expenses. The remainder is added to the original principal, which continues to grow. If you are interested in making a contribution that will have a lasting effect on the future of the organization, a gift to the Academy’s endowment is an ideal opportunity.

Inquire about Capital and Endowment Giving by contacting Chief Advancement Officer Jonathan Bishop.

Name-A-Seat Campaign

Individual seats in Hahn Hall are available for naming through a gift of $5,000 per seat, and feature the donor’s preferred name listing on a beautifully engraved brass plate. Individual, foundation, honorary, and memorial listings are welcome as part of this campaign. There are fewer than 190 seats available for naming, and they are being assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
