Tafelmusik, Horst Dantz and Don Quick Endowed Fund
In recognition of the importance of endowment funds and the benefit of matching programs, Tafelmusik patrons Horst Dantz and Don Quick established the Tafelmusik, Horst Dantz and Don Quick Endowed Fund. The annual income is to be used to support and name a cello chair in the Tafelmusik Orchestra.
The original gift from Horst Dantz and Don Quick enabled Tafelmusik to apply for matching funds from the Canada Cultural Investment Fund, Endowment Incentives Component from the department of Canadian Heritage.
