Support Us


There are many ways to support the Hutchins Consort

With ticket sales covering only a fraction of productions costs, a large portion of our annual budget is realized through donations from government and private foundations, corporate partnerships, sponsorships and individual gifts. These contributions are the foundation upon which the Hutchins Consort continues to present annual concert series and educational programs. Your tax-deductible gift also supports concert tours and college residencies where master classes and performances introduce entire communities to the magnificent sound of the Hutchins Octet.







Matching Gifts

Many organizations will match charitable contributions made by employees, doubling or even tripling the amount of your gift. Whether you choose to become a sponsor, show your support by advertising in the season programs, or continue the tradition of making that all-important individual gift, your contributions help to fuel the momentum of this organization. Thank you.


All musical organizations are seeking the same thing – stability – assurance that the music they produce will continue for a lifetime and the educational programs they initiate will raise a new generation of musicians and music lovers. Please contact Joe McNalley at 760-632-0554 to discuss a contribution to the Hutchins Consort Endowment Fund.

Corporate Sponsorship

Partnerships within the communities we serve are an important part of our mission. We are deeply grateful for the generosity of our sponsors because it enables us to bring the powerful sound of the Hutchins Violins to audiences locally, nationally and internationally. We create individual sponsorship packages designed to bring patrons and sponsors together, and we encourage our audiences to support the organizations that support us. For more information on the benefits of sponsorship, please contact Joe McNalley at 760-632-0554.
