Our Endowment

Earlier this year, we sadly lost a long serving and dedicated Associate, Katie Grigsby.

Katie Grigsby
1931 to 2022

Katie was instrumental in establishing a permanent endowment fund in support of Idyllwild Arts’ students. She with a few other Associates recommended that a $1,600 Elderhostel donation be used to fund an endowment. The Endowment Fund was created in 1988 and grew over the first years through many small donations. Later larger donations were made in memory of Associates and others who had passed away. Her recommendation to donate 10% of the net proceeds from Associates’ events, such as Jazz in the Pines, was the driving force for the endowment’s growth to the $310,000 that it is today!

If you haven’t already, please take this opportunity to join your fellow Associates in honoring the service and memory of Katie Grigsby by contributing to the ENDOWMENT FUND in her name.
