WMV SDG Shirts
Shirts by Seek Dry Goods

Wisconsin Music Ventures feels it is very important to 1) provide appropriate compensation for musicians hired for performances, and 2) keep performances free for the public.

The Wisconsin Music Ventures Patron Rewards Program

Do you feel strongly about supporting Wisconsin-based musicians while showing off extraordinary scenic venues in our great state? If you wish to support the WMV mission, please consider a monthly patronage (subscription). In exchange, we’ll give you some pretty great stuff!

Patron Rewards

While not required, please consider committing to this monthly contribution for a full year. A PayPal account is necessary for all who wish to participate in the WMV Patron Rewards Program. Contributions are not tax-deductible.

Should you choose to give money, you are by no means obligated to participate in each opportunity listed.

Following a patron’s $$ commitment, a survey will be sent asking which activities the contributor(s) would like to be involved with – no pressure whatsoever!
