2022 Friends of Chamber Music Post-concert reception

Initiated in 2017 and made possible by the consistent generosity of Friends, a significant initial donation from Anita and John Mahoney, and generous donations from the Founding Members of the Endowment Legacy Society and others, this Endowment will ensure that the music of the world’s finest classical composers and musicians will continue to make Beaufort the cultural envy of much larger, much wealthier, and much less fortunate towns and cities.

While the Friends of Chamber Music annual donations are essential to support the expected yearly operating expenses of the Series, the Endowment is a statement of the community’s and the University’s long-term commitment to the program and an invaluable means of meeting unforeseen financial challenges should they arise. As a life-sustaining, life-enhancing instrument, it offers donors the opportunity to ensure not only the concerts’ present, but also their future. Going forward, the Endowment will grow with additional donations, earnings, and the routine reinvestment of earnings, thus, establishing further financial stability and security for the incomparable music of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, et al. as well as the brilliant artistry of Armstrong, Arron, Ehnes, Parks, et al.

The USC Educational Foundation in Columbia provides professional expertise for investing and administering the USCB Chamber Music Endowment. It offers a variety of methods for contributing: cash/securities, retirement plans, matching gifts, multi-year pledges, bequests, charitable gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts.
