The Glacier Symphony and Chorale depends on a variety of sources of funding to stay in operations. Currently, our ticket sales cover only 26% of the cost of running the organization. We rely upon grants, corporate donors, fundraising events and private individual donations to produce the wonderful symphonic and chorale music of the GSC, along with the important “Wild About Music” youth education and scholarship programs.
Donations and Sustaining Support
Make a charitable, tax-deductible contribution to the GSC. Your donation will be recognized in a variety of ways depending on the size of the gift, and you will be helping support our organization which provides northwestern Montana with the highest quality of symphonic and chorale music. Of course we value gifts of any size at any time.
To have the biggest impact on our organization, and to make it easiest on your budget, we encourage you to consider becoming a Sustaining Supporter of the GSC by making a monthly tax-deductible contribution. Most Sustaining Supporters do this by providing us with a credit card and an amount that will be charged on the 15th of each month. At the end of each calendar year you will receive a letter receipt for tax purposes and your gift will keep on giving until you decide to modify it. If it is easier for you to set up the regular recurring donation through your online banking account or by other means, we welcome the support. Call our office at 406-407-7000 to set up your monthly gift or click the link below.
Join the Maestro Circle at a giving level of $1000 and above. You will be invited to special events and receptions designed just for our Maestro Circle donors. At levels of $5000 and above you will be entitled to guest soloists coming into your home for private events, and other occasions to dine with the Maestro and guest soloists!
Make a gift to the Endowment of the GSC. Build a legacy of great symphonic music by contributing to the permanent endowment fund. This fund will build through the years to provide permanent operating support for the GSC. Your gift will be preserved forever in this fund, leaving a lasting memory of music. Gifts can be made directly to the GSC with clear instructions to restrict the gift to the Endowment, or gifts can be made directly to the following community foundations, with instructions to deposit them in the GSC Endowment Accounts: Flathead Community Foundation, Montana Community Foundation and the Whitefish Community Foundation.
