WomenSing’s 2014-15 season was brimming with accomplishments. There were two acclaimed concert programs and an exciting second installment of the Treble Voices Now Festival. We launched a new outreach initiative, WomenShare, which provides free concert tickets to underserved community members and middle and high school students. We were also able to hire a part-time Chorus Manager and provide scholarships to choir members so more women could participate.
All these milestones are the direct result of incredible community support. Our supporters attended the annual Gala, bid at the online auction, and took advantage of the Pop-Up Thrift Shop. They contributed generously to the annual campaign. The number of active contributors increased by 11% and total donations were up by 16% over the previous year! Concert ticket sales cover only 13% of WomenSing’s expenses. The remainder of our income stems from individual, foundation and corporate gifts. Each gift shared with WomenSing enables us to continue to fine-tune and grow our artistic and outreach programs. We look forward to partnering with all our loyal donors and new donors as well for continued success as we launch our 50th Anniversary Season!
