The Shrewsbury Chorale gratefully acknowledges a generous multi-year gift from Martin and Laura Krupp to the Shrewsbury Chorale Endowment Fund. The mission of this fund is to provide ongoing long-term financial support for the Shrewsbury Chorale’s concert activities and to assure the Chorale’s ability to fund special projects and goals essential to the continued growth and stability of the organization.
Each year the Shrewsbury Chorale must raise money from many sources to fund the annual series of concerts for the group’s central New Jersey audience. Current funding sources include ticket sales, membership dues, fund-raising events, government funding, and program advertising. The rising costs of preparing and producing these concerts often limit the Chorale’s ability to undertake new and exciting challenges, such as commissioning new works, performing with a full complement of musicians, or bringing the group’s music to other communities. Long term funding from the Shrewsbury Chorale Endowment Fund will help to meet these challenges.
The following are some of the ways to contribute to our Endowment Fund. Donors’ names will be acknowledged under this Endowment Fund Section.
● Stocks or Securities: A gift of stock, property, or securities is tax-deductible for the donor, relieves the donor of capital gains liability, and benefits the Shrewsbury Chorale with the full value of the gift.
● Multi-Year Pledges: A pledge to the Chorale can be paid over a number of years, allowing the donor to make a substantial gift without having to liquidate current assets.
● Deferred Giving: A number of giving plans allow the donor to make a gift of stocks, securities, or property to the Chorale, enjoy the tax benefits of such a gift, yet continue to live off the income from those assets until his or her death.
● Including the Chorale in Your Will: Naming the Chorale as a beneficiary of your estate in your will assures that future audiences and members will enjoy the benefits of a strong, vibrant organization for generations to come.
