Keep the Music Playing

Music - of all kinds - is the tapestry that makes Winfield unique.

Its rhythm is our heartbeat.

From "Bluegrass" to the The Community Music School at Southwestern College, the Winfield Arts & Humanities programming and Duck Jam in the Park...MUSIC IS Winfield.

In honor of the 50th Walnut Valley Festival Legacy Foundation is establishing our "Keep the Music Playing" fund to foster and support music in Winfield. Donate today to "keep the music playing!"

In addition to cash gifts, Legacy Foundation may accommodate other financial vehicles such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, real estate, commodities, life insurance, retirement funds and bequests. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Legacy stewards over 200 funds, but you can also give through Legacy to any area nonprofit organization.

Just earmark your gift to the cause, or causes, of your choice.
