Annual Fund

Ticket revenues only cover up to 30% of the costs of a concert. Gifts to our Annual Fund are essential to our performances.

Additionally, a major portion of the operational costs of specific subscription concerts, school performances, and community outreach events are underwritten by sponsors, and we are delighted to recognize them accordingly.

Endowment Fund

The up and down cycles of the economy would have a much greater effect on our programs without the safety net of our endowment fund revenues. They help to keep the quality and quantity consistently excellent.

In 2017, the Board established a special endowment fund in honor of Tom Hall upon his retirement after 35 years as Music Director. Gifts made to this fund are part of Baltimore Choral Arts’ endowment.
