Gifts Received Since May 1, 2020

Birch Creek Strong

In this year of COVID-19 cancellations, our ability to generate revenue through student tuition and concert ticket sales has been interrupted. Our donors, friends, members of the Birch Creek Community, and some generous friends we’ve never met have responded to our campaign, Birch Creek Strong, to help us move forward together. Those whose names are listed below have made gifts since May 1st, after the above program book was in production.  We are so proud of the generosity all of you have shown as we reached out for your help. As we continue to reshape our 45th season with an exciting, new venture–Birch Creek Online–we still need you beside us.  Consider making a donation today. On behalf of our students, thank you!
