2023 Match the Magnificence
As we close our 2022/23 successful season, we are very happy to report that we are ending this year debt-free with a balanced budget, thanks to your support—as ticket holders, subscribers, donors, and sponsors. We are writing to you today as we once again launch Match the Magnificence, our spring campaign to match our giving to the excellence of our orchestra and support its long-term health.
Prior to the pandemic, Match the Magnificence raised about $100,000 new dollars each of the five years we held it. Match helps to make possible our amazing business and artistic results including:
- Receiving a 95% rating for audience satisfaction AND artistic excellence—six seasons in a row
- Having Roberto Minczuk as our Music Director, who is taking the orchestra to new levels
- Continuing the Student Sound Card, which is bringing new, young audience members to NMPhil performances
- Launching new concerts geared towards families with children who can enjoy an afternoon of great music and music education with our wonderful musicians and Maestro Minczuk.
Because of 5 years of the Match, we have been able to gradually and carefully grow our budget, enabling NMPhil to match rising costs. We hope to continue this measured and organic growth. Given that the average orchestra receives more than 60% of its income from donations compared to our 50%, we have more room to grow our donated income, as we continue to earn a large part of our revenue through ticket sales. Join us in continuing to create an ever better future for your NMPhil by participating in this year’s Match.
Every new donation, every increased donation, and every commitment to continue the journey with your NMPhil creates a bright future for your orchestra, one that is full of wonderful promise and possibilities.
Our deep thanks
President & CEO
