William J. Dehning Memorial Fund

Donations to the William J. Dehning Memorial Fund support the NCCO William J. Dehning Memorial Summer Opportunity Grant. This grant will be open to graduate students and rising junior/senior undergraduate students in conducting, music education, and related areas, and it will provide funding to help students afford summer educational opportunities in an area appropriate to their continued study and development. The primary criteria for acceptance will be the applicant’s statement of intent and how the program will help to enhance their learning. Through this program, we hope to honor—in perpetuity—Bill Dehning and his lifetime of dedication to conducting students.

It is our hope to open our first application period for these grants in Fall 2020, with the first grants to be awarded for Summer 2021. To do this, we need your support. Will you join us today in becoming one of the first contributors to support this new program? Gifts of all sizes are welcome.

Donations to NCCO, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
