Madi Bacon Endowment Fund for Music Education Scholarship
The Madi Bacon Endowment Fund for Music Education Scholarships (“Fund”) celebrates the influence of Madi Bacon, who founded the San Francisco Boys Chorus in 1948. She believed in economic and racial equality, in a broadening multicultural sensibility, and in the transformative power of music. The Fund is to honor her courage, her quest for excellence, her élan, and her joyful approach to learning and music making.
The exclusive purpose of the Fund is to provide an annual financial scholarship award to one or more choristers who have demonstrated strong musical and vocal promise and whose behavior and Chorus citizenship are exemplary. The scholarships shall be applied towards the cost of each selected chorister’s tuition and musical education at the San Francisco Boys Chorus.
