Masterwork's fundraising campaign will run through June 30, 2020. Our campaign began on May 5th in recogonition of GivingTuesday Now, a global day of giving for people around the world to stand together in unity--to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
The recent unimaginable challenges faced by us all, have brought our world together in a way we might have thought impossible two months ago.
We have learned about gratitude, sympathy, empathy, thoughtfulness, keeping in touch. In these challenging times, we, sadly, have missed the opportunity to enjoy beautiful music together.
We must put aside our regrets and look forward to a time when our music will help our audiences and, indeed, ourselves, recover from this unprecedented encounter in our world’s history. We must look toward our future, doing our part to usher in a new era of optimism and well-being.
Now is the time to join together as one to provide beautiful music for our audiences and ourselves; thus holding fast to Masterwork’s mission, and to our role in the recovery process that will soon take place. It is our responsibility, all of us, a group of people who remain connected by our love of music and the joy we find in singing together, to help ensure that choral music will continue to inspire our communities.
As we create a clear path forward and move beyond the unprecedented challenges faced today, we know society will depend on the glory of music to bring people together and heal. When the times comes for us to gather again you have our commitment that Masterwork will re-emerge as one of New Jersey’s premier community musical organizations.
The members of The Masterwork Board of Directors fully comprehend this challenge, and so have generously created a one for one Challenge Grant. This means that every dollar raised during this campaign will be doubled up to $12,000 providing the opportunity for us to raise $24,000!
Please help us invest in the future of Masterwork programming by doing your part to honor this challenge. Please give today to inspire our audiences and ourselves with beautiful music for many tomorrows.
