Become a Community Sponsor

October 2022

Dear Friend of Music,

Niskayuna students are making beautiful music again and we invite you to be a part of it!

As a community sponsor of Niskayuna Friends of Music, we offer the unique opportunity to show hundreds of local families that you directly support their children and our community. Below please find a list of benefits you’ll enjoy at each sponsorship level. Every sponsor will receive a special window cling, so your customers will know you are helping keep music alive in our schools!

The pandemic was certainly a challenge – especially for our student musicians. That is why we are thrilled to be back to full audience, in-person performances this year, including chorus, band and orchestra concerts from elementary through high school, as well as special music festivals and guest teacher experiences. We also award student scholarships for both college and summer enrichment opportunities. Please notify us as soon as possible about your sponsorship to make sure you are included in all our programs and publications!

As a non-profit volunteer organization, Niskayuna Friends of Music relies on the support of local businesses and civic organizations like you to keep our district’s award winning music program strong. As a community sponsor, we are pleased to provide you with extensive visibility in our concert programs, special newsletter, and website. Your gift is fully tax-deductible and can be paid by check or credit card via PayPal on our website.

Now, more than ever, help us celebrate the joy of music and by becoming a Niskayuna Friends of Music community sponsor.

Thank you in advance for your consideration,

Sarah Bilofsky
