Investing in the musical life and legacy of Philadelphia

Why Support the Society

Dear Friends:

Another year of great music begins. We are so fortunate to live in Philadelphia and have such a wide range of excellent musical offerings available on a daily basis.

The Musical Fund Society has played a major role in the richness of Philadelphia life throughout the past 200 years, and continues to do so today through grants to the projects of organization, to presenting the MFS concert series at the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, to advancing the careers of the next generation of concert artists.

Not the least of all, MFS brings you together with like-minded music lovers and supporters from the region. With that in mind, your to help is needed to drive a robust present and guarantee the future of the Musical Fund Society by your annual support.

Bicentennial celebrations for 2020 include four newly commissioned works by significant American composers and presenting their world premieres with leading Philadelphia ensembles on May 1, 2022. Please note that due to a high demand for tickets, this event has been moved from the Mary Louise Curtis branch of the Settlement Music School to the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater. For more information visit the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society’s website.

Your tax-deductible gift to the Musical Fund Society Foundation can make that difference.

Reaching our goal of $15,000 this year provides us with the means to keep these organizations vital. Please join me by sending your contribution to the Musical Fund Society Foundation today. You may safely pay online or may mail a check to:

Please take the time—now—to contribute to the musical life of Philadelphia. By sending any amount you can, you proclaim that an outreach of music here is an important part of our culture itself, an announcement you and I cannot repeat often enough.

With my thanks, and best wishes for this upcoming season,

Peter Burwasser

President, Musical Fund Society Foundation
