VFMC Memorial & Recognition Fund
The VFMC Memorial and Recognition Fund provides an excellent way to recognize and honor individuals who have made significant contributions to your music club during the past year, or to memorialize a member of your club who recently passed away and contributed immeasurably to the advancement of music in your community throughout their life. The program involves a donation of $25 or more to the VFMC in the name of the honoree and these donations are then applied solely to state level contests and scholarship competitions designed to encourage education, composition, and performance of music. There is no better way to recognize or memorialize a dedicated member or another significant contributor than by giving support in their name to the efforts of the Virginia Federation of Music Clubs to promote music and sustain music education in our State.
The process is very simple. The person or organization making the gift in the name of the honoree completes the MRF-VA Form and submits it to the Memorial and Recognition Fund Chair with a check payable to VFMC. The gift check will be forwarded to the VFMC Treasurer. The name of the honoree and the donor will be entered into the VFMC Book of Memorials and Recognitions as a permanent record of the gift. Gifts of $25 or more will be listed in the Official Program of the VFMC Annual Convention.
This program is a State Level Program - different and separate from the NFMC Memorial and Recognition Fund in which donations go to the Fund for the Advancement of Musical Arts at NFMC. For more information on the NFMC Program, find Form (Finance Division) FI 4-1 on the NFMC site or contact Ms. Susan Tury, NFMC Memorial and Recognition Chair.
