The Manhattan Symphonie Concert Series has recently been awarded fiscal sponsorship under Artspire, a program of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), for the purpose of accepting tax-exempt contributions from other sources. As a result, financial donations to the orchestra are now legally tax deductible and donors will benefit from the tax advantages provided by a non-profit organization. This is a major breakthrough for funding and we are now in a position to secure the kind of support that will allow our multi-cultural projects to move forward dramatically.
So far, the only thing that has held us back is a restricted operating budget. In spite of that, we have accomplished remarkable things that no other orchestra has achieved-and we can now plan for greater achievements together. The orchestra already has several more Carnegie Hall performances as well as our fourth tour of China. All of this requires additional funding. It is thrilling to imagine what could be created with sponsorship. It will allow us to continue our concert series and arrange wider musical tours in the US and other countries, reaching across different cultures and borders to develop connections on every level. There is no limit to achieving those goals!
With warmest regards as always,
