Join a Crescendo of Contributions!
We have accomplished so much as an organization this year, and we must take a moment to thank you, the CSO community. Thank you for making it possible for us to present so many different programs in service to the people of Stark County and beyond. Without you, we would not be able to provide such a wide array of musical offerings. We pride ourselves on providing an ever-evolving variety of musical experiences. There is something for everyone to enjoy!
If you are willing and able, we invite you to contribute to one or both of our year-end campaigns. By doing so, you will help us ring in the new year on a strong note!
ANNUAL FUND – When you make a gift to our annual fund, you are providing unrestricted operating support for our programs, strengthening access to exceptional orchestral music and arts education in our community. So far, we have raised $45,000 towards our $125,000 goal for the 2023-2024 season! All contributions exceeding $50 will be listed in the program unless you would like to remain anonymous.
GERHARDT ZIMMERMANN MEMORIAL FUND – To honor our late and beloved Maestro, we have established an endowment fund in his name to sponsor the MasterWorks series in perpetuity. We have been generously gifted $100,000 from the estate of William P. Blair, III, who was a long-time board member of the CSO and advocate for national arts funding. This gift has been designated for use as a matching goal for the Gerhardt Zimmermann Memorial fund, with the match ending on June 30, 2024. So far, we have raised $78,000 towards our $250,000 goal! All contributors will be listed on the “Legacy Wall” being constructed in the Larry & Nancy Hoover Gallery upon the campaign’s conclusion, unless you would like to remain anonymous.
Join us in creating a harmonious legacy that echoes for years to come. Your donation is not just a gift; it’s a melody that continues to inspire and uplift. Thank you for being the key to our continued success.
