FWSO Musicians "The 109 Project"

$14,616 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 143 people in 29 months
The Musicians of the Fort Worth Symphony are very grateful to the many supporters that contributed to our first campaign to help us through our unfortunate work stoppage. However, we were disappointed that our CEO, Amy Adkins, in an email to the Symphony Board, dismissed musicians’ supporters whom she did not have in her database, and insulted the ones whose average donation amounted to $109.

Therefore, we are challenging the attitudes of the Board and Mrs. Adkins with a new campaign, called “The 109 Project”.  We think it would be a great show of the power of community action if a large number of people made donations of $109, either as individuals or as teams (you can come up with a fun name for your team when donating). Of course, we will gladly accept any amount you wish to give. (We don't discriminate.)

Remember, whether you donate $1.09, $109 or any other amount, you will send a clear message that small donations make a difference. All money raised goes directly to our campaign fund to pay for expenses during our strike.

Become a “109er” today! Thank you for your continued support of our efforts as we fight for “GROWTH, NOT CUTS”.

Hi there, I know you are back to work but also that prolonged strikes have a lasting financial impact. The musicians of the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra wish you all a Merry Christmas and good luck going forward.
