Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SPCO Audience Match?
The SPCO Audience Match is a new fundraising initiative encouraging recent SPCO donors to inspire fellow SPCO audience members to make a new gift to the SPCO. In the 2017.18 season, Annual Fund donors made increased gifts and pledges totaling $51,500 to encourage audience members to join them in supporting the SPCO. From April 15 to June 30, 2018, new gifts to the SPCO were matched up to this amount by the generosity of these donors.
