Did you know that CMH was the first chamber music organization in the United States to establish its own endowment fund?
With a long-term view toward financial stability, the larger the endowment, the healthier the organization. Beneficial in many ways, a small percentage of endowment interest earnings can be made available annually to balance the budget, if needed. It gives us the financial security to sometimes be daring.
Planned gifts are a win-win: you create a lasting legacy and so does the organization you support.
Consider, for example, donating an insurance policy, IRA, or other assets to the Endowment Fund. Appreciated stock is always appreciated; as is a checking account, a gift of your home or business property. Many planned giving options offer generous tax benefits as well.
Whether it’s naming CMH as a beneficiary of your will, a life insurance policy or other liquid or non-liquid assets, we encourage you to consult with your financial advisor to discuss the options.
In 2018 CMH became a member of Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s Hawai‘i Legacy Giving Campaign, joining more than 100 nonprofit organizations statewide.
The group effort is designed to increase philanthropy throughout the Hawaiian Islands by making it easy for individuals to see the many ways planned giving can support their highest ideals and dreams.
