The Sarasota Chorus of the Keys Sheridan E. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund


The Sheridan E. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund was established from estate gifts donated through the wills of chorus members and their spouses. We use the annual earnings to fund college scholarships for three needy high school male seniors in Sarasota and Manatee Counties who have outstanding musical backgrounds and records of achievement. These funds are invested in a variety of stocks and bonds and are managed by a local stock brokerage in coordination with the Scholarship Investment Committee. legacy logo


The Erd Dahl Legacy Fund

The Legacy Fund was introduced in the fall of 2006 as a companion to the Brown fund. It serves as a repository for unrestricted donations received by the chapter. This fund, valued over $29,000, was established from $23,000 in outright donations from chapter members and $6,500 from patrons in 2006 and 2007 to get the Legacy Fund underway. 
 

The purpose of our Legacy Fund is to provide an endowment from which we can draw annual income to support other charitable and educational programs of the Chorus such as providing learning materials to high school choral organizations; coaching and workshops to improve and promote the art form of four-part a cappella harmony; providing tuition for students, music educators and choral directors attending music clinics and workshops; and other responsible charitable community support and public service programs. These funds are invested in the endowment funds of theCommunity Foundation of Sarasota County as a donor-advised fund, pooling the Legacy Fund with over $135 million in local charitable funds to give us the highest possible level of accountability while providing us the economy of scale.

 

We appreciate the support of our friends and members.
