Do Something More on North Texas Giving Day!

Do Something More on North Texas Giving Day


As our 75th year comes to a close, we want to thank you for making it a memorable one. The passion our patrons bring to the Music Hall is a huge part of why we are a cornerstone arts organization in Dallas. Last year, you vocalized your support of DSM on North Texas Giving Day and made us the number one performing arts organization in the online giving event. We need you to help us make this year an even bigger success! Every gift made through on September 17th increases our chances of winning one of 70 prizes awarded by the Communities Foundation of Texas, and every gift of $25 or more will earn bonus funds. These incentives help you make the most of your generosity.

Beyond supporting the best of Broadway, a gift to DSM is an investment in the cultural fabric of North Texas. Your support directly powers the significant outreach programs that we offer to engage underserved children with musical theatre and the arts.

The success of these education programs and initiatives inspires creativity and imagination, promotes academic investment, and has realized the dream of musical theatre involvement for thousands of passionate young performers.

For our 76th season, DSM looks forward to expanding its efforts of community support with new initiatives. Imagine being able to provide seats to hundreds of veterans and their families. With your support, we can open the doors of the Music Hall to more of our community and pave the way for 75 more years of magic at the Music Hall.

We also want to celebrate you, our amazing patrons, and the spirit of giving in style this year! DSM will host a giving day soirèe at the House of Blues from 4pm – 8pm On September 17th. Join us for a live musical performance, donation stations for your giving convenience, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, prizes, photo booth fun, and the opportunity to connect with fellow supporters.

Finally, we want to give you more opportunities to share your love of the musicals and our community. On September 1st, we will be instituting the North Texas Giving Day DSM Photo Challenge, where contestants will share photos of themselves “Doing Something More” in the North Texas community OR of themselves in costume from one of our upcoming shows. The contest will run until 11:59 p.m. on September 15th, with winners announced at our celebration at the House of Blues. Click here for the full scoop!

Thank you again for making the Music Hall your home for music and memories. Thank you for the generosity which gives the same opportunity to all members of our community.

Together, let’s Do Something More.

In a season marked by giving and glad tidings, it's better to give wisely.


Giving to worthy causes makes a huge impact on the community. It improves the lives of those who are giving and those who are receiving. Your 2008 year-end gift can significantly reduce your income taxes, while providing meaningful support to DSM.


Annual fund contributions close the gap between ticket sales and operating costs. In light of the challenging economic times, we hope that all who share our passion and vision for Dallas Summer Musicals will consider making a contribution to the full extent of their ability. Every donation large or small will help DSM gift a child with the magical experience of musical theatre and the community with the highest caliber of performing arts.



This season, we have made it even more rewarding for you to make a generous donation by giving additional special benefits in recognition of your gift. It’s our way of saying thank you for your support. Visit our donation site to make your donation and for gift details. Of course you can also call the Year-end donation hotline at (214) 413-3957.
