 < A Year-End Giving and New Membership Program> 
Now, it is time for us to seriously prepare for the remaining concerts of this new season. However, as a new organization, we are lacking enough budget to organize all of our future concerts. Therefore, we strongly need your generous donations to continuously bring wonderful music to our valuable audience like you. 

While ticket sales only counts 25 - 30 % of total operating budget, your generous individual / corporate donations are truly essential for us to maintain our successful artistic activities. We would very much like to ask you to be a part of the NYFO family by joining our patronage program to support our 2016-2017 season!

Currently, we have set the following "3 STEP CAMPAIGN"

1. An immediate goal of $5,000 by December 31
2. A Start of a New Year goal of $5,000 by January 10
3. New Year Giving Campaign goal of $10,000 toward next spring in order to realize our special concert, "3.11" 6th Memorial Concert in aid of earthquake and tsunami in North-eastern part of Japan in 2011. 

NYFO will pursue our Mission Statement to share the "GOODWILL" among many countries in the world through our music-making. 

In January, we are honored to perform in the "WORLD PEACE CONCERT" at the United Nations, General Assembly Hall in New York City, details will be announced soon, with Beethoven's monumental Symphony No, 9, which we made a sensational Carnegie Hall debut in 2013, as well as the legendary Spanish (Catalan) cellist, conductor, composer and peace activist, Pablo Casals' "HYMN TO THE UNITED NATIONS"*, whereas both works have a common key message as "we are all brothers". 

 *The work was commissioned by the U.N. Secretary-General U Thant, to mark the 25th anniversary of the U.N. in 1971. The text was written by W.H. Auden, then regarded as the greatest living English poet, and set to music by Pablo Casals, who was presented the "U. N. Peace Medal" upon its world premiere in the General Assembly of the U. N. Headquarters in New York City. 

We hope you will join us to enhance the "GOODWILL" which is absolutely essential for mutual "FRIENDSHIPS" and "WORLD PEACE" via music, which we strongly believe as the world's best "CULTURAL AMBASSADOR" to make human lives ever better. 

In appreciation of your generous support, NYFO would like to offer various rewards such as a FREE pair of complimentary tickets or a special gift to you according to the patronage level.

Even if you live away from the New York area, it will be greatly appreciated to have your encouraging support which will eventually help us reach out to you by producing new CDs or going on tour to perform in your home town, not to speak of delivering many more our exciting progresses and achievements. 

Any fine orchestra has lots of potential to build up quickly to explore its artistic activities globally. Your generous support is a key to such successful paths in the near future! Please join us to spread our "GOODWILL" to make a difference for our ever better and peaceful world!
