By fiscal standards, your board took a less-than-prudent leap of faith to get our beloved VMAC up and running again last summer after a two-year break. But we’re glad we dipped significantly into our reserve funds: the lion’s share of our cumulative losses had been driven by the decision to pay our faculty and staff during both canceled seasons.
We did that because our faculty are the heart of VMAC. Lower enrollments and a shortened Week One last summer also took their toll. Despite these dents in VMAC’s finances, we were able to make music together again in 2022, jump-starting the program, making plans to restore fiscal health as soon as possible, and looking forward to less lean years to come.
In short, we’re ready to be prudent again. Only differently.
In order to better support one of our largest fixed costs, we’re launching sponsorship options for five faculty positions.
Here’s what we’re thinking of to get started:
