Combining your legacy with ours will help ensure Meadowmount continues to provide an unmatched experience for young artists preparing for distinguished careers in music.
Establishing an Endowed Fund
Through the establishment of an endowed fund, philanthropic dollars can grow exponentially over time and can guarantee targeted support to a requested fund.
Endowed funds ensure that money is available in perpetuity to help Meadowmount students afford tuition costs, support high quality programming, and provide for annual capital improvements for our campus. Each year a portion of the accrued interest funds a disbursement; the remainder is returned to the endowment so that it will grow every year. Endowed funds become an integral part of Meadowmount, therefore donors often choose to create one or more to commemorate the legacy of a faculty member, fellow student, distinguished musician, or another important individual.
