Your Arkansas Symphony Orchestra was overwhelmed with support and love from our community yesterday. Thank you to each of you who contributed to ASO Giving Day!
Not only did you help us reach our initial goal of raising $125,000, and then our stretch goal of $175,000, your generosity pushed us over the top to an incredible $177,926.10 raised! We also met our goal of 45 new, first-time donors—thank you! Because of people like you, ASO is able to continue to connect, enrich, inspire and advance Arkansas through the power of music.
We also extend a very special thank you to our Board members and anonymous donors who stepped up to give generous matching funds so ASO Giving Day donations would have an even greater impact!
Your gifts for ASO Giving Day will help us bring violin classes to more children through our Sturgis Music Academy, take music into the community in new and unexpected ways, and remain accessible to everyone through low ticket costs, free tickets for children, and concert streaming opportunities.
We are excited to report our ASO Giving Day 2019 totals:
- $177,926.10 raised!
- 45 new donors!
- 184 total donations!
Yesterday proved once again just how much you care about ASO’s work in the community and how important it is to continue to make great music available for everyone.
Thank you for your generosity and for making a difference in the lives of Arkansans!
