Support PRISM

Since the PRISM Quartet was founded in 1984, we have endeavored to connect great modern music to audiences at home and around the world. PRISM has collaborated with leading composers, presenters, community and educational institutions, solo artists and orchestras, and record companies to further this cause. But PRISM’s most important collaboration is with you, our audience members and supporters.

We invite you to become an integral part of PRISM’s activities by making a tax-deductible donation to our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, PRISM Quartet, Inc.

Past support from individual donors has enabled PRISM to make important contributions to the field, and to our community. Your support will:

  • Help PRISM commission the nation’s most gifted established and emerging composers.
  • Enable PRISM to continue to self-present its groundbreaking concert series in Philadelphia, New York, and Ann Arbor, providing an opportunity for hometown audiences to enjoy the group’s most adventurous programming.
  • Help disadvantaged youth develop an appreciation for new music, and explore their creativity through PRISM outreach and residency programs.
  • Preserve a legacy for new music through ambitious recording projects.

Making a donation takes only a few minutes, but your support will have a lasting impact on PRISM’s creative work in the current season and beyond. MATCHING: Many employers match charitable contributions, allowing you to double your gift’s impact. Be sure to ask your employer about this option.

PRISM members have collaborated with one another for nearly four decades and know how rich and rewarding working together can be. We look forward to celebrating this year of collaborations with you, our supporters, audiences, and friends.

In Kind Contributions
PRISM relies on many forms of support beyond financial contributions. Won’t you consider donating goods (office supplies, office equipment), services (catering, printing, design), or becoming a PRISM volunteer (helping out at concerts). In kind contributions are an important resource, and an integral part of PRISM’s strategic plan. Every contribution helps!
