Giving Tuesday 2022

We ask that you would consider donating to Market Street Music Conservatory as we continue in our mission of creating community through art & music. When you give to MSMC, your donations help us continue to make music and art education, as well as performance opportunities, available to everyone! 

We are registered with GiveSI.org. GiveSI is a community day of giving for all of Southern Illinois in conjunction with the global movement, #GivingTuesday.  SICF & WSIL TV3 will be launching a 30 Hour campaign for nonprofits throughout Southern Illinois. Only donations made after 5:00pm on 11/28 and throughout the day on 11/29, will be counted towards the bonus pool matching.
