Fund for the Future
Musicians of the Old Post Road's fund to support artistic growth and organizational longevity
Initially spurred by a $250,000 challenge from a generous benefactor, in December 2015 we successfully reached our goal of raising $750,000 for the establishment of our Fund for the Future! We are so incredibly grateful to the hundreds of supporters who made this dream a reality.
Income generated from the investment of the fund will provide organizational support, enabling us to focus more time and energy on enhancing and expanding our artistic and educational activities, as well as imagining and pursuing compelling long-range musical projects.
As part of our Fund for the Future campaign goals, we have already begun work on the following projects ...
Expanding educational content on our website:
- The addition of new feature articles about some of the little-known composers whose works we bring back to life for today's audiences
- An interactive timeline of music and art history, along with major historical events that span the years during which the Boston Post Road flourished
- Expanded podcast library about various musical topics
- Creation of a free channel on our website that streams selections of music performed live at our concerts over the past several years, including many modern day premieres
- Planning for our 2018-19 concert season that will feature many regional premieres and highlight the accomplishments of Enlightenment composers
- New Editions of recently revived works
As Old Post Road continues to grow and makes its artistic, cultural, and educational contributions to both local and worldwide communities, please consider adding your voice to support our work by making a charitable contribution to our Fund for the Future.
Donors who contribute $10,000 or more to the Fund cumulatively will be permanently recognized in all future program books.
Please consider passing on your values with a gift or bequest.
