The Encore Fund

Following the cancellation of our 2020 season of public concerts and events, the Encore Fund was created with lead support from the Grant Park Music Festival’s Board of Directors and other dedicated donors.
 
Thousands of members and friends of the Festival contributed generously to this campaign, and we are thrilled to share that we surpassed our 2020 fundraising goal! The Festival received more than $2.5 million in philanthropic gifts to end its fiscal year on December 31 in a strong financial position.
 
We deeply appreciate the Festival’s many outstanding supporters, and we look forward to reciprocating by uplifting and uniting our community through the power of music for many years to come.
