Jackson Symphony Guild
Letter from the President
Symphony Guild Announces Annual Donation of $58,000!
Each year the Jackson Symphony Guild works diligently to raise funds to benefit the Jackson Symphony Orchestra. Tonight Guild President Donna Lake presents a check in the amount of $58,000 to the JSO. These funds represent 8% of the JSO fiscal budget and are critical to the success of the orchestra. Funds raised through the Holiday Ball, Jewelry Sales, Jazz Night and membership dues are used by the JSO to sustain general operations and play a vital role in
furthering the JSO commitment to community youth and young musicians. Guild funds provide significant scholarship monies for Jackson area students that wish to attend Michigan music camps. $3,000 in annual Guild funds are also designated to the JSO with the express purpose of supporting The Jackson Youth Symphony. Quite apart from dollars, Guild members act as post-concert reception hosts and hostesses, office help, concert volunteers, and serve on
committees that organize the Holiday Ball and Jazz Night.
The Guild has grown in stature and strength and is recognized throughout the state as one of the most effective music arts support groups in Michigan and the envy of many orchestras. Each year peer review panels from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs comment on the role the Guild plays in supporting the JSO and their programs. This is an organization of which we are all truly proud!
Thank you to all who have worked to make the Jackson Symphony Guild a vital partner of the JSO and the music arts in this community!
