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. Between February 24 and March 31, 2018, recent Annual Fund donors made increased gifts and pledges to encourage audience members to join them in supporting the SPCO. From now until June 30, new gifts to the SPCO will be matched dollar for dollar by these donors up to $40,000! Gifts of all sizes matter!

Donations from audience members are the SPCO’s largest and most important source of support—Thank you!
