The Bogue Family Choral Endowment

Phil Bogue and Ethan Sperry, director of choral activities at PSU


In May 2014, Phil Bogue generously established the Bogue Family Choral Endowment. With a goal of $1 million, this endowment will ensure that the choral program at PSU will continue to flourish, drawing talented vocal undergraduate and graduate students from across the country to Portland State University.

The Bogue Family Choral Endowment is already more than halfway to the $1 million goal.  The endowment provides a permanent foundation of support for international travel, recording sessions and guest artists—all the peak experiences that make the choral program so special. 

Two additional donors have issued a challenge to choir supporters: they will match gifts of $1,000 or more to the Bogue Family Choral Endowment.

Please join us to build this endowment to our $1 million goal. Your gift will help ensure that this stellar program will always be a thriving part of music at Portland State. 


Give online through the PSU Foundation! Just select "Bogue Family Choral Endowment" from the "designate your gift" menu.
