Your Support is Critical
Each year, Baroque on Beaver must raise at least 33% of its operating budget through individual donations from people like you. The money raised from our annual fundraising drives help make up the difference between what is earned from other revenue (ticket sales, program book ads, concert sponsorships, grants) and what it costs to produce our Festival season.
If you’ve given in the past, please consider a renewal of your gift to the Festival. If possible, please consider increasing your gift to assist with our increasing costs for our world-class musicians, guest artists, and staff; housing; transportation; music rental; marketing; operations and much else.
If you’ve never given, please consider making a donation – your help is needed. A strong professional artistic and administrative component, committed Board, financially sound organization, and 20 years of great music all combine to create Baroque on Beaver. Please make your donation to help ensure that Baroque will continue to bring great music to the Beaver Island community for many years to come.

2022 Sponsorship Opportunities
We invite businesses and individuals to personalize their support of Baroque by sponsoring an artist or a concert of choice. The following opportunities are available for the 2022 Festival and can be paid in installments between now and May 15, 2022.
Sponsoring an artist shows your support of both the instrument or vocal category and the individual. Our musicians are honored to be sponsored and truly enjoy meeting with the donors who have sponsored them at a lovely cocktail party on the Monday evening of Festival Week. Note: Principal Musicians are listed here but any musician is eligible.
Sponsoring a non-ticketed concert encourages musicians in their smaller group volunteer performances and helps to defray the cost of concerts that are supported only by free will offerings. These concerts always cost more to produce than they earn in free will.
Sponsoring an entire ticketed concert is a testament to the artistic excellence of the Festival and its musicians and Directors. Concert sponsors will join the Board, Executive Director Matthew Thomas, Music Director Robert Nordling, and Choral Director Kevin Simons at a reception during the week before the Festival. The sponsors will also receive public recognition and appreciation from the podium at the concert.
Interested in using your donation to sponsor an artist or a concert?
Would you like to know how you can split your donation between friends, or between the Fall and the Spring Appeals and still be a sponsor? Please feel free to contact us and we can help you. Leave a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you within a day.
Your support makes Baroque on Beaver possible. Thank you for your generosity.
