Endowed Funds
Endowed Funds are at the very heart of the Symphony's giving program because they ensure the current and future operations of the organization through a flow of interest and dividends.  They nurture and sustain the musicians, guest soloists and other orchestra personnel and support the music education programs for children and youth that are so vital to our future.

You can make gifts to an established endowment fund, or create a named fund in honor of a specific person or in a particular area of interest. The minimum gift to create a named fund is $20,000. Unless otherwise designated, gifts to the Cape Symphony Endowed Funds are added to the Unrestricted Endowed Fund. We gratefully acknowledge the generous donors who have created and/or helped sustain all of these funds.

Unrestricted Endowed Fund provides assistance for annual operating expenses. The Board of Trustees annually determines a percentage to be transferred to the general operating fund.

Endowed Chairs Program allows a chair to be named for a family member, an admired person or an organization or to memorialize a friend or loved one. A chair may be endowed in perpetuity or for a term of five or 10 years, with the total amount of the gift conveyed to the Symphony outright or in installments for a period of one to five years. Endowed chairs are listed in our concert program books.

Named Endowed Funds allow a fund to be created in honor of a family member, an admired person or an organization or for a particular purpose. Examples include the Edward D. Vitali Memorial Scholarship Fund for professional development of deserving Cape Symphony musicians, the Guest Soloist Fund for extending the orchestra’s range of programming through high-quality soloists, and the Royston Nash Fund, created in honor of our Music Director Laureate to enhance the Symphony's programs. Funds including the Laurell, the Music Education Fund and the Sibley Fund help students through scholarships and complimentary tickets. Several other named endowed funds are also offered.
