Crescendo Fund

In 2006, the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus took a big step to ensure its future by establishing an endowment fund through the Columbus Foundation. This trust, known as the Crescendo Fund, was designed to secure the longevity of the Chorus by placing moneys aside for major capital expenditures and special needs. The Crescendo Fund is truly an investment in the future of the Chorus. The fund has not been designed to finance the day-to-day expenses of the organization. Instead, it is used to cover major purchases, such as new risers, and other special needs as they arise.
