THE VANDERCOOK TRADITION
Each year we kick off the annual Share Your Passion Campaign. The annual campaign supports VanderCook’s general operating budget. Every dollar contributed goes directly to overhead costs, allowing VanderCook to keep tuition increases to an absolute minimum while providing a competitive, quality college experience for our students. As enrollment continues to increase, the Passion campaign has become even more critical to the day-to-day operations of the college.
The reality we face is that our needs – the academic needs of our students - continue to outpace our support. We set $100,000 as our campaign goal for 2017. A lofty goal? Yes. Unattainable? No, because we know we can count on you to play our part and commit to VanderCook, to our students, to our future, and to the future of music education.
As technology and teaching methods continue to change, the annual Passion Campaign takes on even
greater meaning and purpose. As we look ahead to our future, your investment in VanderCook and our students secures our legacy. Your investment in the Passion Campaign will make a difference in the lives of our students. You can help us give them the unprecedented educational experience that is VanderCook’s hallmark. Your gift empowers Hale A. VanderCook’s vision of an institution where…
EXCELLENCE in MUSIC
PROFESSIONALISM in TEACHING
STRENGTH in CHARACTER
...are honored traditions supported by a TRADITION of GIVING.
And every gift matters and will bring us to our goal. Every gift makes a difference, changes a life, and secures the future of music education. So, please, if you have not already responded to the Passion mailing, take a moment to support VanderCook and the next generation of great music teachers. We can do it with you…thank you!
Thank you to everyone who has invested in the Share Your Passion Campaign!
