Ways to Give
Make a Donation
Our supporters are members of our larger Festival family, and your investment in us ensures outstanding chamber music as a staple in our community. Every amount counts!
Sponsor an Artist
Show your support by sponsoring a Festival artist or Shouse Group. Our Artist Sponsors not only help support our organization’s longevity, but get to know their artist(s) at concerts and afterglows.
Invest in the Tocco Society
This is a lifetime giving program for the Festival’s most loyal and generous donors. The Tocco Society recognizes our founding Artistic Director, James Tocco, through his vision and leadership. Members of the Tocco Society join our current Artistic Director, Paul Watkins, in discussions about artistic programming in future seasons.
Host a Festival Artist
Open up your home for an artist during the Festival! Our artists rave about the hospitality and wonderful experiences they have staying with local hosts during their time at the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival.
Become a Benefactor
Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival Benefactors make a gift of at least $1,500 per year in support of the Festival. Benefactors receive 14 tickets to be used on Festival subscription concerts, private receptions with the artists and tickets to the Festival’s annual dinner on Opening Night.
Sponsor a Concert
Whether you want to sponsor as an individual or as a business, you will receive a host of benefits, including tickets, concert signage, online recognition and private receptions with the artists. You can sponsor on or your own or co-sponsor with another individual or entity. This is a wonderful way to invest more fully in our concert programming.
