The Heritage Chorale Targeted Funds Program addresses the request by some of our contributors to specify how their donations will be used. It is designed to complement other giving programs, such as the annual Friends and Supporters Campaign, and is intended to allow the Chorale to accumulate funds over several years to support activities that would not be feasible within a single year’s operating budget. The Program enables donors of significant amounts to apply their contributions to any of three funds, each with an objective that supports the Chorale’s overall mission to bring high-quality choral music to the Metrowest community:
The Concert Fund enables the Chorale to perform music that would ordinarily exceed the annual operations budget, for example, performing a work that requires a large orchestra or commissioning a new work.
The Capital Fund enables one-time purchases of significant material goods for the Chorale, for example, additional choral risers or a concert shell.
The Outreach Fund assists the Chorale in bringing music to those in the community who might be unaware of our concerts or otherwise unable to attend them, for example by providing transportation for a segment of the community that could not otherwise attend.
The Targeted Fund Program requires a contribution of $250 or more (which the donor can allocate across the three Targeted funds however desired) to reflect the program’s goal of gathering funds over several years to enable significant expenditures that support the Chorale’s mission.
The Chorale intends to use each Targeted Fund’s assets exclusively for the purposes stated above. Each Targeted Fund is tracked separately and will grow from year to year through contributions and earnings on its balance. Targeted Fund donors may elect to receive an annual report containing information, such as initial balances, contributions, earnings, expenditures, and closing balances, as well as a description of expenditures supported by the Targeted Funds. Additional details of how the Targeted Funds are managed can be found here.
