Individual Giving

Check out our current NSO Donor Brochure

Our individual donors are integral in sustaining the NSO’s mission to make live orchestral music accessible and available to all.  Ticket sales and subscriptions cover only a small portion of the funds required to produce high quality concerts and important education and outreach programs. We rely on government funding, corporate sponsorship, and individuals like you. 

To make the most of your donation, please consider the various ways you can support the NSO – including gifts of securities, bequests in a will, and memorial contributions. These planned-giving methods can offer you significant tax advantages while allowing your orchestra to serve our community while presenting the highest quality performances possible!

The Benefits of Giving

As an NSO sponsor, you will receive a charitable tax receipt* for your donation of $20 or more as well as recognition in our Season Program.
