What is the difference between an endowed gift and a current gift?

A current gift goes toward supporting costs incurred in the current fiscal year.

Endowment gifts provide permanent support for the Gifted Music School. Gifts to the endowment are invested and only a percentage of the income generated from the principal is spent. The percentage of the principal is determined according to a spending rate established by the School's Board of Trustees (typically about 5 percent). Any difference between the amount spent and the amount earned is reinvested in order to help the endowment keep pace with inflation.


Can I donate a musical instrument to Gifted Music School?

The opportunity to play a quality instrument can make an important difference in a young musician's artistic development and we welcome inquiries about these types of gifts. 


Does Gifted Music School accept in-kind gifts of books, scores, manuscripts, and recorded material?
