Our primary goal in developing the Missouri Chamber Music Festival (MOCM) is the contribution we are making to the musical life of St. Louis and the state of Missouri. Part of our mission is to present
concerts in smaller venues to keep the excitement and immediacy of live performance visceral for our audiences. As a result, ticket revenue only covers a fraction of the cost of MOCM concerts, visiting artists, commissioning projects, and the MOCM Pro-Am Intensive. We depend on the Festival Fund to make up the difference. The Festival Fund is maintained by area arts councils and generous individuals like you.
The MOCM Festival Fund supports program expenses including:

Matching Gift Programs
Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by companies in which the business matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. For example, if a donor works for Scottrade, Inc. and donates $250 to a K-12 school, university, or 501(c)(3) organization, Scottrade may "double the donation" by writing a check for $250 to the same organization. Matching gift programs are offered by companies across the world. About 65% of Fortune 500 companies (and many others) match employee donations. When making a donation to the Missouri Chamber Music Festival, be sure to check with your human resources department to see if your contribution may be eligible for a match and learn how to facilitate the donation.
MOCM also has a dedicated and talented group of volunteers who help with ushering, receptions, stage crew, parking, database management, and much more. Learn about how to volunteer with MOCM.
Board of Directors Membership
MOCM currently has a small but effective and creative Board of Directors. We hope to further grow this group of MOCM ambassadors and supporters. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Board Member or have recommendations, please call us at 314.882.0053 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
