Music Memorials & Gifts
In recent weeks, a few of you generous souls have offered to make donations to the music program, but are unsure as to which fund you wish to enrich. Here is a list with details for each Music Memorial and Gift Giving program available. Donations to any of these funds may be made on-line here, designate desired fund in the Additional Information field.
Music Memorial Fund
This fund supports the purchase of durable items for the music program, such as instruments, music, folders, stands. While gifts may be given in memory of a loved one, they may also be used to honor someone. Music given in memory/honor of someone will have a label on it to that effect, so that we will always think of your loved one when we use the music.
Sometimes Exultemus needs supplies or equipment that is not covered in the music operating budget.
Friends of Music
This fund supports music outreach in the form of concerts offered free of charge to parish and community. Funds are used for performance fees, publicity, program printing and hosting receptions. Donations are freely given by parishioners and those who attend concerts.
Music Operating Expenses
This budgeted item funds regular maintenance of the music program, such as postage, publicity, printing, licenses, instrument maintenance, and music supplies.
Organ Memorial Fund
This is a long-term fund for future expansion of the organ.
At Christmas and Easter there is an opportunity to help provide guest instrumentalists for special liturgies. This is a large expense (typically about $1,500 per feast day and the music budget does not cover all of it) and your generous support has enabled some wonderful seasonal music.
