Dear YCT Friends & Families,
Hopefully you have already received our annual fund letter. Thank you to everyone who has already responded to the letter; we appreciate your kind and generous gifts, which will be used to help YCT continue to fulfill our mission of encouraging children of all backgrounds and talents to develop their voices through creative vocal training.
To follow up on our annual fund letter, we are excited to announce that we have received a generous commitment to match your donations up to a total of $10,000! As you know, the pandemic has had a huge impact on our organization's ability to function. As a staff, we have worked as hard as possible to keep our students engaged and learning, although we are all looking forward to singing together again as soon as it is safe to do so. Our finances have also been greatly impacted. Our Wine & Song event and auction, which was the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts in 2018 and 2019, was canceled in 2020. This was a huge blow to our organization's financial stability. In the difficult stay-at-home environment, many donors lost track of some of the annual gifts that they typically make. We hope that this exciting matching gift opportunity will help to reconnect with our donors.
With this matching gift initiative, your gift will double in value and will ensure that we are able to continue to bring choral music to students of all ages across the North Shore.
Please consider making your gift today on our Go Fund Me Campaign, or by mailing a check to us at PO Box 128, Wilmette, Illinois, 60091. Gifts will only be matched until December 31, 2020, so please don't wait!
Thank you for all of your support!
