Matching Gift Challenge for New Donors

To encourage more Symphony lovers to become donors, the CSS Treasurer and his wife have pledged to match every new donation or sponsorship made in 2016. This pledge generously covers all new donors/sponsors up to a total of $10,000. Thus, this most generous pledge offers CSS an amazing new opportunity to raise $20,000.

Every newly sourced donation/sponsorship given by a private individual or corporation will be matched. A charitable tax receipt in the amount of the donation (greater than $20) will be issued. All new donors will be acknowledged by adding their names to the donor list printed in the Symphony concert programmes during 2016.

To keep CSS sustainable, we need to raise annually at least $25,000 in donations and sponsorships. This represents about 20% of our annual budget. If we can meet this so-generous challenge, in our 60th year, we shall reach our goal.

If you have never donated to the Symphony Society before, this is definitely the year to do it!

To make a donation, send a cheque to
The Cowichan Symphony Society
Box 732 Duncan
British Columbia, V9L 3Y1

Or present your donation to a Board Member at the Symphony desk which is located during each concert in the lobby of the theatre, or to a Board Member at any other time.
