Solano Winds Endowment


The Solano Winds
Robert O. Briggs Endowment Fund
and the
Solano Community Foundation 

     After Bob Briggs retired as Director of Bands from the University of California at Berkeley, it was only a matter of months before Solano County had its own community band based in Fairfield. Briggs was the Music Director for Solano Winds for thirteen years until his death in 2008 at age eighty-one. Before his passing, Bob established a scholarship fund that continues to supports high school musicians with their study of music. In 2013, that scholarship fund expanded to become a permanent endowment fund benefiting Solano Winds.

     The Robert O. Briggs Endowment Fund is managed by the Solano Community Foundation and provides annual operational support to the Solano Winds Community Concert Band. Solano Winds earmarks the first portion of that support to continue Bob’s tradition of offering scholarships to local music students as well as providing organizational support to the band. As a part of our special Season 25 celebration, we are also embarking on an ambitious campaign to grow this fund into the future.

     Our patrons and concert sponsors have always been very generous, making our twenty-five seasons possible! With a more robust endowment focused on our future, we will be able to more confidently plan ongoing programs that reflect our community’s support for the arts. Our volunteer Board of Directors will be able to more accurately project financial opportunities, assisting with long range planning and enabling more ambitious and entertaining musical programming.
