The Vestry approved the establishment of the Saint Mary’s Music Fund in 2005 to provide special resources for the music program.

Brass instrumentalists for Easter, Concert artists and scholarships for Royal School of Church Music Summer Courses for junior choristers are several possible uses for contributions to this ongoing and permanent fund.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering making Music Fund contributions:

  1. Contributions to the Fund are tax-deductible and are considered outside of pledged giving to the general budget.
  2. Contributions in any amount may be made to the Fund in the form of gifts or gifts that thank, honor or remember persons or ministries.
  3. Contributions will be acknowledged with a letter from the Minister of Music and listed in the special music event leaflets unless requested to remain anonymous. Honorees and families of the memorialized will also be notified.
  4. Contributions may be made at any time by sending a check, made payable to Saint Mary’s with “Music Fund” noted on the check. Also, if you would like to thank, honor or remember a person or ministry please indicate the name of the person/s or ministry on your check or in an accompanying note.

You may also make a donation online using In the “Give To” pull-down menu, please select “Music Fund.” Thank you!

Please do not hesitate to contact Gregory Hooker if you have any questions or would like further information about the Music Fund.
