Gretna Music Futures Fund

In response to a supporter’s suggestion, the Board formed the Gretna Music Futures Fund in 2016. This Fund allows donors who want their lifetime or testamentary gift to be preserved beyond the year in which it is given. This is a semi-restricted fund which allows Gretna Music to access 5% of such a gift each year, plus any investment gains it may generate.

We urge donors who find this attractive to contact Suzanne Stewart at for more details.
