LSM launches 2010 Endowment Fund Campaign

Every $1 Donated Will be Matched by $1.50 From Quebec Government

[Version franaise]

Montreal, QC December 8, 2009 La Scne musicale / The Music Scene (LSM), the non-profit organization that publishes the arts magazines La Scena Musicale / The Music Scene / La SCENA is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a spot in the matching program, Placements Culture, by the Quebec government. For every $1 donated to LSM by November 30, 2010, the Quebec government will contribute $1.50.

Placements Culture is designed to create endowment funds for charitable arts organizations. LSM plans to raise $100,000 over the next 12 months, which, combined with the government contribution, will create a $250,000 endowment. This is highly important for the longevity of the Canada National Magazine Awards-honoured La Scena Musicale, La SCENA and The Music Scene magazines, the multiple award-winning website, and LSMs other arts promotion activities.

Now celebrating its 14th year, LSM is a registered non-profit charity promoting music and the arts through three magazines, a website, and other outreach activities. It connects musicians/artists, the arts community and music/art lovers together through education and information. Help us continue our work with a donation (cash and goods are helpful) and by volunteering.

In light of the new Placements Culture subsidy, LSM is launching its 2010 Endowment Fund campaign and hopes that during this holiday season of giving, arts lovers everywhere will donate generously. All contributions made by December 31 will qualify for a 2009 tax receipt. Every donor will play an active part in promoting classical music and the arts by supporting LSM.
