Here is a brief explanation of the differences between the two funds.
The Annual Fund
AOSA Annual Fund helps AOSA pay its bills. Membership dues only cover one third of AOSA’s operating costs. The Annual Fund bridges the difference between revenue earned from dues, conference registrations, sales, and investment interest and the expenses of AOSA’s work over the course of the year. Your contribution to the Annual Fund allows AOSA to print publications like Reverberations and The Orff Echo, provide for website development, and pay for the telephones at headquarters.
The Endowment Fund
AOSA Endowment Fund provides the capital necessary to ensure the well-being of AOSA in the future, so children in the future will continue to benefit from Orff Schulwerk. All of AOSA’s endowed funds are encumbered, which means that we preserve the principle of these investments, spending only the interest. The AOSA Endowment Fund provides for AOSA’s longevity in two ways, by providing consistent funds each year and by providing a cushion in the event that AOSA must find emergency funding.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF AOSA!
Our mission is: to demonstrate the value of Orff Schulwerk and promote its widespread use; to support the professional development of our members; and to inspire and advocate for the creative potential of all learners.
