Giving Thank you for your patronage and support. It is our pleasure to bring Mid-Missouri the best in performing arts, made possible by generous support from our donors and sponsors. Our donor benefits begin at the $60 level. Click here to support the University Concert Series The giving spirit of our loyal patrons has helped keep the University Concert Series a viable part of the community for more than 100 years. Ticket sales alone do not account for the yearly balancing of the budget. In fact, there are many ways to contribute without attending an event. For example: A contribution to the Gift Fund goes directly into the operation budget, helping to offset the expenses that ticket sales do not cover. Contributing to the Herbert W. Schooling Endowment Fund makes a direct and unique investment in both the current operation and the future financial security of the University Concert Series. An endowment has been created to allow for special projects that otherwise wouldn’t be possible. Additional funds generated through the Special Projects Fund make possible performances that we could not normally afford because of high artist fees, such as artists like Itzhak Perlman. *A portion of your gift might be eligible for a charitable contribution. Generally, that amount would be the difference between the amount you give and the services or goods you receive, such as premium tickets, event invitations and other special items reserved for donors. The Concert Series will apprise you of these amounts when your gift is received. If you would like for more of your gift to be considered as a charitable contribution, certain benefits can be waived. Volunteering also is a great opportunity to show support.
