Endowment and Planned Giving
65 years of singing and counting, guaranteeing the future of choral music in Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara Choral Society Opens Endowment Fund
at the Santa Barbara Foundation
To celebrate 65 years of choral singing, the Santa Barbara Choral Society Board of Directors has created the SBCS Endowment Fund held at the Santa Barbara Foundation. As a loyal supporter, you have experienced the transformative power of 100+ voices joined in song. Now, we hope you will consider a special gift to the Santa Barbara Choral Society Endowment Fund.
With the establishment of an endowment fund, our aim is to fulfill our mission and to endow future Santa Barbara generations with the same high quality choral music that the community has enjoyed for the past 65 years. Proceeds from the endowment will also allow us to expand our outreach and education programs to community members who have yet to experience the power of choral music. By partnering with the Santa Barbara Foundation we have a variety of benefits that as a stand-alone fund we would not have, such as professional oversight of investments and access to a large, diversified investment portfolio.
The inclusion of a provision for the SBCS Endowment Fund in your estate plan offers you the satisfaction of knowing that future generations in Santa Barbara will benefit from your generosity and wisdom as they too experience the gift of choral music.
