Symphony Designer House

Presented biennially, this is the ASOG’s premier fundraiser which affords designers an opportunity to showcase their talents and give all of us (the ASOG and community) a chance to see the creativity of our local designers, craftsmen and landscapers. This project brings awareness of and interest in the ASO and its supporters from across the state. With the use of over 500 volunteers there are numerous opportunities in the planning and execution of this major Little Rock event. They range from working with designers, marketing the event, staffing the house as a docent during hours of operations and chairing parties and events at the house. The next Designer House will be April 13 – May 13, 2018, at 8 Valley Creek View, Little Rock, Arkansas. To volunteer, call Designer House Chair, Paige James (501) 350-6169.

At Home Magazine

The management of At Home in Arkansas, the state’s premier home and lifestyle publication, is allowing the Guild to sell discounted new annual subscriptions to the magazine for only $7! $5.00 of the sales will be given back to the Guild—a win-win situation! Subscription forms are available by clicking this link. If you subscribed last year and received a $12.95 renewal form, do not use that form, for the Guild will only receive $5 of that $12.95 price. You should have been sent a revised and corrected form offering renewals at $7.00, with the Guild receiving $5 of that amount. Use that form instead to renew your subscription and any gift subscriptions you purchased last year. Do not use renewal forms for new subscriptions. Only use the above linked form for new subscriptions.

AmazonSmile

The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.

When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.

To register go to: http://smile.amazon.com

When you are asked which organization you would like to support, type: Arkansas Orchestra Society Guildinc

After the first time you use AmazonSmile you will skip the charity selection process. Instead you will be taken directly to smile.amazon.com and will be automatically asked if you want to support the Arkansas Orchestra Society Guildinc. Continue to shop as you have done in the past.  If you are a member of Amazon Prime you will remain a member.

Kroger Community Rewards

If you shop at Kroger and have a Kroger Plus Card, you can sign up to have a portion of your purchase donated to the Guild. Some members already do this. In the past we have raised a good bit of money from this, but our checks from Kroger are a very low amount now due to the lack of participation. All you need to do is go to the Kroger website, generate an account if you do not have one, and designate the ASOG (#80706) as your choice for donations. Please see directions below:

You must have a Kroger Plus card to participate, but you can get one at the customer service desk at any Kroger store.

To register for the Rewards Program with donations going to the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Guild do the following:

  1. Go online and follow this LINK
  2. If you already have a Kroger online account, you may select “Sign in” at the top.
  3. If you do not have a Kroger online account, select “Create an Account” at the top and follow the instructions.
  4. After you are signed in, click on the “Enroll” button, and follow the directions for enrolling your card. You will need the number from your Kroger Plus card to enroll. When prompted to find your organization name, type “Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Guild” and click “Search.”
  5. “Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Guild” will appear in the list. Select this and “Save.”

Every time you shop and use your Kroger Plus card, each purchase will result in a donation to the ASOG at no cost to you.

ASOG Playing Cards

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Guild’s Playing Card Fundraiser recently won a national award in Baltimore at the annual conference for the League of American Orchestras. The “face” of these unique playing cards feature images of some of Arkansas’ most treasured locations, natural wonders and notable organizations. The back of the cards feature beautiful images of the instruments of the orchestra. Support the Guild and Make Music Matter by purchasing a deck for yourself, your family or your friends. All proceeds go directly to advance the mission of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Guild to support the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and the people who make it possible.

Please call Mary Rock at (501) 227-7625 to purchase playing cards.
