Did you know that ticket sales only cover 20% of the University of Chicago Presents' operating expenses? Because of this, UCP relies on the support of its patrons and community to make its programs possible. Your generous contributions enable us to continue to provide the music events you have come to enjoy and help to secure their future. Your gift will be used in support of professional artistic programming for our concert series and for our music outreach program. A gift made directly to our Sponsor-A-Student (SAS) program allows students who would otherwise be unable to attend concerts to enjoy the life-enhancing experience of live music. It is a gift that not only helps the individual who receives it, but also helps diversify the audience and ensures a new generation of music lovers. All gifts are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged with a letter for this purpose.

For further information, contact the UCP Concert Office at 773.702.8068. To contribute online, visit the University's Giving site, and select Humanities: University of Chicago Presents.
