Final Pitch Campaign
In the summer of 2008, Birch Creek opened the doors of three new campus facilities that serve students, faculty and patrons. These improvements to our historic campus would not have been possible without the many gifts of long-time and new donors and the efforts of faculty, staff, Board, and volunteer Associates. We sincerely thank each person who contributed to helping us achieve this goal.
At the end of 2013, Birch Creek was able to pay off this debt, and looks to acknowledge our wonderful donors with a permanent Donor Wall to show our appreciation. With this in mind, we are offering interested donors the opportunity to add to their existing gift to move it to a higher level, or to new donors who wish to be included in the Donor Wall. Any 2014 gift to the Capital Maintenance Fund will count toward the level of gift recognition on the Perfect Pitch/Final Pitch Donor Wall, to be installed in 2015.
We look forward to the day that the dollars going toward interest payments could instead be used towards scholarships for students, program enhancements or operations. Please consider a gift to FINAL PITCH to help us enter the future debt-free.
"I would like to express my gratitude for your support of Birch Creek's Music Performance Center. Your contribution helped make it possible for me and many other students to enjoy the experience that Birch Creek offers to musicians.
"I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to be surrounded by professional musicians who helped enhance my musical skills. I was challenged and supported every step of the way, and I am excited to practice everything I learned.
"My time at Birch Creek was truly wonderful, and I hope to return next year. I believe music is a very powerful form of art and intrinsically important to society. As a budding musician, it means a lot to me to know that people like you care about the musical education of students."
