Support the Encore Fund

Following the cancellation of the Grant Park Music Festival’s 2020 season of public concerts and events, the Encore Fund was created through an outpouring of generosity from the Festival’s outstanding Board of Directors and other dedicated friends.  

Together, with your support, we hope to raise $2.5 million in vital funding to sustain our beloved summer tradition and ensure the Festival’s spectacular return to Millennium Park and neighborhoods throughout the city in 2021. By supporting the Encore Fund, our loyal audience is applauding the Festival as a treasured part of their life and an incredible gift for all of Chicago.  

We have been extremely heartened by our community’s response thus far, and invite you to join other passionate Festival patrons in contributing to the Encore Fund by:

During this time of uncertainty and economic disruption, the Festival relies more than ever on the sustained generosity of our donors and members.  We are sincerely grateful to everyone who has contributed to this important funding effort. Thank you for being an integral part of the Festival’s special celebration of music and community.
