The Confer Music and Art Fund
The Confer Music and Art Fund was established at FCS by Harold and June Confer, two of the founders of FCS. Both an operating fund and an endowment, the Confer Music and Art Fund has purchased violins, violas, cellos and other instruments, obtained music and risers for the choirs, brought musicians and artists to the school to perform for students and parents, and provided vocal lessons for students who otherwise could not afford to pursue their talents.
You are invited to make any size donation to the fund. The larger the gift, the more art and music education will grow and thrive at FCS.
One half of every gift is made available for immediate teaching needs, and one half for deposit by the trustees into an endowment portion to earn interest in perpetuity. This creates a constantly growing long term investment that in many years to come could provide significant revenue for FCS music and arts programs that is not dependent on tuition.
The endowment part of the fund will live forever and will continue to make your gift available to future generations of students far beyond your lifetime. That's a wonderful way to practice immortality in your own lfetime. Watch your legacy grow!
To make a donation, you may send a check to FCS earmarked in the memo line for The Confer Music and Art Fund. Send it to Friends Community School at the school address, 5901 Westchester Park Drive, College Park, MD 20740.
