Where We Need Support

Double Your Donation Today with Giving Tuesday!

In celebration of the kick-off of giving season, WSO Board Chair Deborah Severs and Music Director Robert Franz have teamed up to match the first $3,500 donated to the WSO for Giving Tuesday!

At the WSO, Giving Tuesday supports our Education and Community Outreach programs. You are invited to join Maestro Franz and Deborah’s firm, Hogarth Hermiston Severs, in the success of these programs with a gift today. The first $3,500 donated will be matched!

The WSO’s Education and Outreach Programs include:

  • The Windsor Symphony Youth and Community Orchestras
  • 28 Education Concerts for more than 9,000 students
  • 20 Open Rehearsals with a String Quartet in schools for young students
  • 13 Music for Health performances for 1,145 seniors in long-term care homes

What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, taking place each year after Black Friday. Charities, companies, and individuals join forces to rally for their favourite causes. Last year, 6 million Canadians participated in Giving Tuesday and raised $50 million dollars for charitable causes.

This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 for these programs with Giving Tuesday.

Donations in Memory or in Honour

Do you know someone who loves music and the WSO? Show them your appreciation by donating in their honour for an anniversary, birthday, or any occasion of your choosing. Your gift will help connect our community through music.

Many WSO supporters also donate in memory of someone who was close to the WSO or music in our community. We will send a card to the family or friends of your loved one, acknowledging your thoughtful gift. The amount given will be kept confidential.
