Individual Giving //

Your support for our Annual Fund makes our Festival Concerts, and all our programs, possible.

Our Winter and Summer Festivals at Benaroya Hall – along with our free concert broadcasts and all of our education and outreach programs – are produced thanks to the generous support for our Annual Fund from chamber music lovers just like you. Gifts to the SCMS Annual Fund provide essential operational funding that enables us to bring about our Festivals year after year.

In thanks for your partnership, Seattle Chamber Music Society offers the benefits below, designed to bring you closer to the music you love.

If you have any questions, contact Director of Development Kimberly Fulghum at 206.283.8710 or kimberly@seattlechambermusic.org.
