An endowment fund is a permanent source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose – our scholarship programs – and any earnings more than this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, ACDA-MN’s FMC Endowment Fund can grow and provide steady support for our scholarship programs for many years to come.

When you donate to ACDA-MN’s F. Melius Christiansen (FMC) Endowment Fund, you help create a permanent legacy of support for ACDA-MN, your fellow ACDA-MN members and your students, and this community of choral musicians.

To support our scholarship programs, you can donate to the FMC Endowment.
