Annual Fund Contribution Levels

We are heartbroken to report that Covid-19 has forced the cancellation of the 2020 season.

Though we are known as a summer performance venue, Ravinia is a year-round organization with a nonprofit mission that extends beyond the stage. In fact, even without our summer season, the expenses required to operate our Reach Teach Play education programs, our summer conservatory Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute, Bennett Gordon Hall concerts through February, park maintenance, and all of the planning and preparation our staff carried out since the end of the 2019 season, will leave us with an $8 million shortfall even after the initial phases of our Annual Fund campaign.

2020 Society LogoThe Annual Fund is our sole means to meet these needs, and your 2020 gift will help us maintain our commitments. Join the "2020 Society" by making a gift today to ensure the festival's joyous return in 2021. Among other commemorations, donors making contributions of $100 or more will receive special recognition in our 2021 program books.
