Dear Friend of Virgil Fox,
Thank you very much for your inquiry re The Virgil Fox Society. We began in 1978 at the request of Dr. Fox's management and had Virgil's blessing and complete assistance. When he died in 1980, his devoted followers urged us to keep going and so we have.
The Society was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation on October 17, 2000, by the filing of its Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of New York. In 2001 we were granted tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service under 501(c)3.
We have established The Virgil Fox Permanently Endowed Scholarship Fund under the auspices of the American Guild of Organists, to encourage and support talented, young, aspiring organists who will benefit from this fund each year, some of whom otherwise would be unable to attend a Pipe Organ Encounter. We sponsor and encourage memorial recitals, and maintain his grave with seasonal flowers. We have a large library of videos of various lengths; and we have out-of-print rare recordings, and hundreds of concert programs documenting Virgils entire career. We are in the process of arranging to have these items made available at a major institution.
