You can guarantee a vibrant future for choral music in the state of Minnesota!

As a supporter of the F. Melius Christiansen Endowment Fund of the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota, you make something special happen - ensuring the outstanding tradition of choral music in Minnesota.

Since our first scholarship awards were presented in 1997, and thanks to the generosity of people like you, the F. Melius Christiansen Endowment Fund has provided 567 scholarships totaling over $324,329 to young and emerging conductors for professional development and graduate education. In addition, scholarship awards have been presented to needs-based students (grades 4-10) to participate in ACDA-MN's statewide honor choir program.  Recently, the Fund has underwritten some travel expenses incurred for choirs performing at the annual ACDA-MN State Conference.  In addition to these awards, the organization is annually supported to professionally manage and oversee the Fund.

We are deeply grateful to members of ACDA-MN and other supporters of choral music whose faithful giving has allowed us to invest in the choral life of Minnesota through the FMC Endowment Fund.  

As a non-profit organization we rely upon your generosity to sustain the FMC Endowment Fund scholarship programs. Large or small, gifts are gratefully received. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
