The Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra has been sharing music since 1921, and has no intention of letting a global pandemic change this. However, current events have changed our annual fundraising efforts this for the 2019-2020 season. Our standing tradition of holding a Silent Auction at our Season Finale concert is not possible this year, so in it's place we would be grateful if you would consider reaching out and making a tax-deductible donation to keep the music going. The CMSO depends on support from all areas of the community, including generous contributions made by people like YOU.
Your donation makes a big impact for our goal to raise $5,000. This is the goal amount we set and budget for each season for our Silent Auction. Your support in crowdfunding our mission offsets expenses such as artistic expenses, monthly rent payment, rental music, and other operational expenses.
As an added benefit to the CMSO, an anonymous donor has generously offered to match your donation until Thursday, May 21, 2020. You have a unique opportunity to double your impact from your gift.
If you would like more information regarding the current situation of the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, we would be happy to connect with you. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments. We are extremely grateful for your contribution - you are appreciated!
