How You Can Help

Why We Need Your Help!

The Festival at Sandpoint's mission is to make exceptional musicians and performances accessible to the residents and visitors of Sandpoint and the surrounding region.

Each summer we strive to present a high caliber, eclectic and affordable concert series, in an outdoor, lakeside setting that celebrates the natural beauty and charm of Sandpoint, Idaho. It is also our goal to provide musical opportunities to the children in our community through educational programs.

We cannot make all this happen without your support. We hope you will consider a tax-deductible contribution to the Festival's Annual Membership Campaign.

Like most non-profit organizations, the Festival at Sandpoint must raise 40%-50% of its annual budget in order to keep our concerts affordable and accessible to our community. We keep our ticket prices as low as possible, and ticket sales cover less than half the costs of presenting the Festival.

The drive is on to keep the music flowing in Sandpoint! Individual membership categories with accruing benefits range from $25 member level - $1,250 patron level.

Without our corporate sponsors, The Festival at Sandpoint would simply not exist. In addition to individual contributions and grant support, season sponsorships help to pay for the costs not covered by ticket revenue. We would like to acknowledge and thank our sponsors. THANK YOU to all of our contributors for helping us celebrate
