Leopold Stokowski Society
Curtis’s leadership giving society reflects legendary Philadelphia Orchestra music director Leopold Stokowski’s passion, dedication, and unwavering commitment to classical music and Curtis’s young musicians.
The Leopold Stokowski Society recognizes leaders of the Friends of Curtis who contribute $1,250 or more to the Annual Fund each year. By example Stokowski Society members demonstrate their exceptional commitment to Curtis: their gifts comprise the majority of all Annual Fund contributions from individuals.
In appreciation for their generous support, Stokowski Society members receive prominent listings in concert programs and other publications, invitations to a variety of special events, and an array of other exclusive benefits.
The Curtis Annual Fund accomplishes its ambitious goals thanks to the support and leadership of the Leopold Stokowski Society Committee. A subcommittee of the Board of Trustees, it comprises members from throughout the Philadelphia region who are dedicated to preserving and growing the leadership level of Curtis Annual Fund supporters.
The committee’s primary responsibilities are to
- secure Annual Fund gifts at the Stokowski level, $1,250 and above
- identify new potential patrons and supporters of Curtis
- develop strategies to invigorate and encourage financial support of Curtis
