Get Ready to Give Local on April 25-26!
Hosted by Connecticut Community Foundation and sponsored by Ion Bank Foundation for the fifth consecutive year, Give Local Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills will be held on April 25-26 to benefit the vital work of hundreds of nonprofit organizations in our region.
The Waterbury Symphony Orchestra needs your support! A fun and inspiring 36-hour online giving event, Give Local unites donors, businesses, and organizations in giving back to the communities where we live, work and play. During the campaign, every dollar donated is stretched with bonus funds provided by Connecticut Community Foundation and generous sponsors, adding excitement and incentives while raising essential funds for the work of local nonprofit.
Every dollar raised through Give Local will be stretched further by bonus funds and prizes donated by Connecticut Community Foundation and their generous sponsors. In 2016 the bonus percentages was 12% meaning that a $100 gift became $112.00!
Through Give Local, the WSO is excited to let you know that sponsors have promised to match funds if we reach specific goals! These funds will go towards our organization during the event in the form of bonus and competitive prize money to generate excitement and support.
The WSO most urgent need is in support of our educational outreach! Bravo Waterbury! and our educational programs across the region. Please consider supporting this wonderful program for aspiring young musicians to learn and perform exciting and challenging music. Bravo focuses on the whole child, nurturing them physically, mentally, and emotionally with quality instruction, mentorship, and nutrition. Bravo components include Bucket Band, Instrumental Exploratory, group lessons, Violin, Choir, and a host of enrichment activities.
We are reaching out to the community to spread the word about our talented young musicians and to find support for what is truly a unique community resource. Lets help change the trajectory of a child today!
Gifts received from appeals or solicitations are used to meet operating expenses such as music programming, financial aid, teachers, rehearsal space rental, production costs, workshops, music and instrument maintenance.
Many corporations support their employees by matching gifts to non-profits of their choice. Please check with your company to see if they have a matching program and a form you may send in with your gift to WSO. This is a relatively easy way to increase your impact on our programs.
