Just Duet 2018 Matching Challenge


Help us reach $1 million!

For the eighth year, the Argosy Foundation has generously renewed its $250,000 matching grant challenge – Just duet 2018.

Last year, you exceeded our wildest expectations and set a new record. Thanks to the generous support of 1,377 people, Just duet 2017 raised $940,251.

You showed us how much this community loves its symphony, and we were so inspired by your support that we’ve set a new goal: $1 million.  

Now through August 31, your new or increased gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000 thanks to the generosity of the Argosy Foundation. This is an amazing chance to double the value— and impact—of your Annual Fund support!

The impact of your support extends beyond Uihlein Hall, directly into our community. From free neighborhood concerts to concerts for youth to new and innovative programming, the MSO is committed to sharing the transformative experience of live orchestral music with people of all ages, backgrounds, and from all walks of life. And we couldn’t do it without your help.

Double your impact - contribute today!  You can also triple your gift through your employer’s matching gift program.

There simply is no better way to show your support, and no better time to give. With your help, we can reach $1 million in new and increased gifts this year!

Argosy Matching Challenge Builds Annual Foundation for Success
Shovels are in the ground and construction has begun at the Warner Grand Theater, the MSO’s new concert venue. Patrons and supporters may be asking “How can I help?” One of the best ways to help the symphony is to support the MSO’s Annual Fund. And right now, your donations can make double the impact. Last year, the total raised during the Just Duet campaign was just over $940,000, and this year the symphony is hoping for $1 million. “Our donors continually beat our wildest expectations,” said Karli Larsen, Director of Development Operations.
