Your support goes further thanks to matching funds

December 18 2023

We are excited to inform you of this unique opportunity to amplify your support for the promotion of Baroque music and the art of gardens through the Fondation Les Arts Florissants – William Christie.

An anonymous donor who is passionate about our mission has initiated a matching gift campaign that multiplies the impact of your contributions. It's time to take action: your donations made in 2023 and 2024 are especially powerful! 

By contributing, you actively participate in preserving a unique cultural heritage and creating opportunities for young talents. Your support will enable us to produce concerts throughout the year, develop innovative educational projects, and ensure the longevity of an institution dedicated to spreading early music among diverse audiences and nurturing the artistic growth of younger generations.

Your donation, whatever the amount, may be eligible. The campaign seeks to encourage generosity in two ways: 

You are a first-time donor: Your donation will be matched by an additional contribution from our donor, equivalent to 50% of your donation.

You are supporting us again: You have supported our cause over the years – thank you! If you increase your donation in 2023 compared to the last two years (2021 and 2022), the donor will match it with a donation equivalent to 50% of this increase, further bolstering your support. The same applies if you increase your donation in 2024 compared to 2022 and 2023. *

How to take part:

Your donation can take several forms. Visit our website to make a giftbecome a member, or support the restoration of the Maison au Palmier

If you are resident in the US or Europe, take advantage of the tax deductions in your country: your donations made through the American Friends of Les Arts Florissants or Transnational Giving Europe are also eligible! 

We warmly thank our anonymous donor for her generous initiative and all our donors for supporting Les Arts Florissants.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at philanthropie@arts-florissants.org


* In the case of large donations, the donor-matched gift will be capped at €50,000 in order to encourage a broad spectrum of donors.
