Endowment Fund

CMC’s Endowment Fund helps to ensure that future generations will continue to enjoy world-class chamber music in the Rogue Valley. In addition to helping offset the ever-increasing costs of these distinguished, international ensembles, earnings from the Fund help CMC to support its vital and dynamic educational outreach programs for our community.

Gifts to the CMC Endowment may be in any amount, and can take many forms, such as cash contributions, appreciated securities, or a charitable remainder trust. You may pledge a certain amount over a period of years, or make a bequest in your own name or in the name of a loved one. Contributions to the Fund are part of a reservoir of principal dedicated exclusively to Chamber Music Concerts, and professionally managed by the Southern Oregon University Foundation. Please consult your financial advisor about the many possibilities for charitable giving to the Endowment Fund.
