Endowments

What does it take to ensure the future of great choral music produced by 60 talented volunteers, professional singers and instrumentalists? Sustaining and Support donors provide a substantial and invaluable part of the funding, however, that support is also subject to current economic conditions. As Easton Choral Arts enters its 41st season, we continue to expand and improve our programs to the communities on the Eastern Shore. This can only be accomplished by assuring the society of continuous financial support year after year. That is why ECAS supporters have established the ECAS Endowment Fund as a means to provide on-going financial support to the chorus. The Fund is managed by the Mid-Shore Community Foundation located in Easton, Maryland.

Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible in accordance with IRS rules and the Fund is exempt from federal income tax.

For more information, contact Marcia Fidis at (301) 318-3220 or marciafidis@gmail.com

Each endowment gift of $50 or more will be recognized in the program for the next ECAS concert. In addition, when a donor’s total amount contributed to the Endowment Fund reaches certain thresholds, the donor(s) will be listed in the ECAS Endowment Honor Roll which is included in every concert program. Recognition levels for the Honor Roll are:

  • Impresario Circle - Total contributions between $5,000 and $14,999
  • Virtuoso Circle - Total contributions between $15,000 and $24,999
  • Maestro’s Circle - Total contributions of $25,000 and above

Gifts of cash are easily made by writing a check to ECAS Endowment Fund and mailing to Mid-Shore Community Foundation, 102 East Dover Street, Easton, Maryland 21061 or with a credit card using the button below. You will be directed to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation for online giving.
