The Amadeus Circle Challenge: Amplify the impact of your gift

Your Amadeus Circle gift to the NJSO not only helps the Orchestra through critical Annual Fund support but also can trigger a matching gift. The Amadeus Circle Challenge is designed to increase the impact of the Amadeus Circle by expanding the membership and deepening the commitment of existing members.

The Amadeus Circle Challenge:

  • All new members’ gifts will be matched 2:1*
  • A three-year pledge commitment for new and existing members will be matched at 50% of the cumulative pledge total*

*up to $10,000

Your Amadeus Circle gift to the NJSO helps the Orchestra not only through critical Annual Fund support but also through your leadership in this crucial initiative. Amplify your impact! Your commitment makes a difference.
