The Robert J. Berkman Fund

The Robert J. Berkman Fund ("the Fund"). The Board shall use the endowment payout from the Fund to support the processing, preservation, and digitization of piano rolls in the Robert J. Berkman Piano Roll Collection and of related collection materials; educational programs, events, and exhibits pertaining to the piano roll industry, ethnic rolls, musical performance of rolls on pianola, and reproducing player pianos, and historic recording technologies; and general support of the Piano Roll Program.

If, in the judgement of the Board, changed circumstances should at some future time render the designated use of the Fund no longer appropriate, then the Board shall use distributions from the Fund to further the objects and purposes of Stanford University, giving consideration to the special interest as evidenced by the purposes described above. Gifts to the fund will be subject to the University's infrastructure charge on gifts restricted to specific purposes at the time they are expended.
