🎻 ❤️ Do you know someone who loves classical music and would support the work we do? Some things to think about as we move rapidly towards Giving Tuesday and end-of-year contribution time:

32% of our annual operating budget comes from individual donations — we’re able to offer free community programs and educational outreach, plus keep ticket prices relatively low because of these contributions.

We have a matching grant from the Richard L and Diane M Block Foundation for new donors. The Block Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar any donations we receive from people who have never before donated to the Sitka Music Festival.

We love our supporters and always have room to open to new family! sitkamusicfestival.org/donate-now/
