The Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra
is a non-profit community orchestra, established in 1976, that promotes its mission of Enriching and Educating the Community through Music.
- Offering enriching performances for residents and visitors.
- Providing orchestral music education for children and youth.
- Giving a means for professional and amateur musicians to play.
- Providing performance opportunities for soloists and guest conductors.
As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra is registered with the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP) program of the DeKalb County Community Foundation (DCCF) to participate in the Give DeKalb County event on Thursday, May 4.
Only a small portion of the annual operating budget for the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra comes from ticket sales and advertising. Give DeKalb County provides an important part of our fundraising and we appreciate the fine donor response we have received in recent years.
From 12:01 a.m. through 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 4, donations to the orchestra may be made online with a credit card or debit card at www.givedekalbcounty.org. Also, donations may be made with cash or with a check (in person by the check-writer) at the DeKalb County Community Foundation, 475 DeKalb Ave., Sycamore IL, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
In addition to the funds donated directly to the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra and other nonprofits in the county, a pool of money is being established, to be divided among the nonprofits in proportions reflecting the amount of the day’s total donations earmarked for each of the participating organizations.
Your tax-deductible contributions to the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra are truly appreciated and will be put to good use in enriching our community’s musical experiences.
