Dear Friend of the Gateway Festival Orchestra,
Today is Give STL Day, a 24-hour (midnight to midnight), online giving event organized by The St. Louis Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The Gateway Festival Orchestra is one of many not-for-profits in the St. Louis community that is participating.
Last year, more than $2 million was raised in 24 hours for the St. Louis community. That number is sure to be exceeded this Tuesday. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum amount. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations. All event-related donations must be made at givestlday.org during that 24-hour period.
Your donation will be matched
The Roland Quest Memorial Fund administered by the St. Louis Community Foundation has given us a Matching Grant for up to $15,000 this year. Therefore, your donation will be matched, giving us twice as much money! This generous gift allows us to offer FREE concerts each summer and concerts for disadvantaged children.
Please tell your family and friends about our upcoming concerts and GIVESTL Day. Sharing information about our organization is key to its growth.
Thank you for your continued support,
Raymond Taylor, Ed.D.
Gateway Festival Orchestra Board
