Keep Kansas City diverse, vibrant, and equitable into the future by assuring the long-term financial health of the Kansas City Women’s Chorus — with a gift to the Kansas City Women’s Chorus Endowment Fund.

What is the Kansas City Women’s Chorus Endowment Fund?

Created to honor the legacy of the Kansas City Women’s Chorus’s work as a musical home for members and a force for social good, the Kansas City Women’s Chorus Endowment Fund is a special investment fund meant to enable Kansas City Women’s Chorus’s financial well-being for the long term. Donor gifts are set aside in an income-generating investment that may be tapped in times of need, capital growth, or other special circumstances.

  • Gifts are administered by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation.
  • Withdrawals are typically made only on income generated by growth of the fund. A Kansas City Women’s Chorus Board vote is required to make withdrawals.
  • Withdrawals may only be made once the principal in the fund has reached and is maintained at $25,000.
  • Endowment funds are typically not used for everyday (and important) expenses such as rent, musicians, commissions, and music purchases.

What does this mean to you?

  • Endowments may be an appropriate option for those:
    • Who wish to give a large amount once, as the principal has an opportunity to be invested and grow.
    • Who are most interested in making a deferred, future gift.
    • Who prefer to direct their gifts toward capital investments, one-time improvements, or times of greatest need.
  • To have an immediate impact, regular contributions to Kansas City Women’s Chorus’s general operations are still the best option. Access that option here.
