Summer Update

July 18, 2019

Happy Summer!


Thank you so much for lending your support to the WWU Symphony Orchestra's 2020 European Tour! I'm just writing to give you a quick update on the progress our project has made since we officially launched in May.


On Western Give Day, we raised over $20,000, outpacing nearly every other WWU campaign both in terms of dollars raised and number of donors participating. The response was nothing short of overwhelming! Combined with other individual donations, ticket revenue from our film music concert in May, and bake sale proceeds, we currently have over $29,000 raised!


Nonetheless, we still have a long way to go to meet our goals. We have a number of projects and special events in the works for 2019-2020, but in the meantime, if you have anyone in your life who might be interested in supporting these students in this incredible international educational opportunity, I encourage you to please pass along the link to our VikingFunder website:




Thank you again for all your support in helping to bring this opportunity within reach for our students.


All best wishes for a warm and relaxing summer,

Ryan Dudenbostel
