We're grinning from ear to ear: thanks to 39 generous supporters, we reached our Maestro Match goal!
The Maestro Foundation presented this match in honor of 15 seasons of Elemental Strings: they would match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $7,500.
Our community of music education supporters enthusiastically rose to this challenge and helped us not only max out our fundraising goal but even exceed it, raising $7,957!
Together with The Maestro Foundation’s match, we are able to raise a grand total of $15,457 in our Maestro Match fundraiser!
Our programs truly could not run without donations like these. In our 2018–19 season alone, Elemental Music has provided over $110,000 in scholarships for young musicians to participate in our programs. Your donations are vital in allowing us to help keep our programs accessible for all westside students, regardless of ability to pay the full tuition. And that’s not all – your dollars help us hire top-notch teaching artists who work weekly with our students, rent beautiful concert venues for our performances…the list goes on!
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank every donor who has made a gift to support music education in our community. We could not do this without you! And a very special thank you to The Maestro Foundation, who gave us this exciting fundraising opportunity!
