Giving

The giving spirit of our loyal patrons has helped keep the University Concert Series a viable part of the community for over 100 years. Ticket sales alone do not account for the yearly balancing of the budget. In fact, there are many ways to contribute without attending an event. For example:

  • A contribution to the Gift Fund goes directly into the operation budget helping to offset the expenses that ticket sales do not cover
  • Contributing to the Herbert W. Schooling Endowment Fund, makes a direct and unique investment in both the current operation and the future financial security of the University Concert Series.
  • An endowment has been created to allow for special projects that otherwise wouldn’t be possible. Additional funds generated through the Special Projects Fund make possible performances that we could not normally afford because of high artist fees.
  • The Classical Music Endowment supports continued classical programming.
