Private funding is the critical factor in continuing the standard of excellence for our students, faculty, programs, and facilities.

Each gift is a catalyst that advances our students’ artistic and professional aspirations. Scholarships, access to world-class faculty, invaluable performance opportunities, unique programs and course offerings, and other critical academic experiences are all possible because of private support.

An endowment is a self-renewing resource that the University holds in perpetuity and does not spend. Instead, endowed gifts are invested, and the earnings from these investments help fund scholarships, fellowships, and other needs of the School of Music.

Creating an endowed fund gives you an opportunity to put your name or the name of another person or organization on the endowment in memory or tribute. The minimum investment required to create an endowment within the School of Music is $25,000, and may be established with an outright or planned gift.
