About Individual Fund Drive

Have you attended a Knox-Galesburg Symphony performance? Maybe you’ve heard one of our radio broadcasts on WVIK, WCBU, or Tri States Public Radio? Perhaps you took your child to Music Mornings at the Galesburg Public Library? If you can answer “yes” to any of the questions above, you have seen what the Knox-Galesburg Symphony Orchestra does in our community!

The Knox-Galesburg Symphony could not exist without the support of patrons like you. In order to make this season a success, we need your help. Ticket sales cover less than 25% of our annual expenses, including orchestra payroll, music purchases and rentals, and advertising and marketing costs. The Knox-Galesburg Symphony’s Board of Directors, in collaboration with Executive Director Lucas Wood, works to identify and secure additional resources from corporate contributors, program advertisers, private and government grants and their own generous philanthropy. But we can’t succeed without individual contributions from you and our many other dedicated supporters.

Your gift of any amount will make a difference! Please consider donating today. Here are some ways your gift can help:

• $100 tunes a piano
($8.50/month)
• $250 rents or purchases music for one concert
($21/month)
• $500 covers orchestra rehearsal refreshments for the season
($42/month)
• $750 covers programs and posters for a concert
($62.50/month)
• $1000 covers 3 musicians’ expenses for a concert
($84/month)
• $2500 sponsors a subscription concert soloist
($208.40/month)
