Designating Your Gift
FRIENDS OF COPLAND HOUSE: Unrestricted donations to the Friends of Copland House annual appeal help support our ongoing programs. These gifts are used to fund costs of composer residencies; fees for our concert performers, teaching artists, recordings, and broadcasts; preservation and maintenance of Copland’s home and our pianos, archives, and facilities; and salaries, overhead, and general operations. Friends receive priority announcements to special events and concerts throughout the year.
THE JOYCE AND GRANT BEGLARIAN ENDOWMENT FUND: Gifts to the Endowment Fund ensure the long-term health and stability of Copland House and all its activities. The Fund honors educator-composer-arts visionary Grant Beglarian and his wife Joyce, early champions of Copland House’s mission.
NAMED GIFTS: Gifts or bequests at an appropriate level will be recognized by naming a specific composer residency or commission, CULTIVATE Fellowship, concert, recording, performer's chair, or educational or other program in tribute to you, a family member, or friend.
