You can support The Florida Orchestra in a variety of ways. Whether you give your time, your talent or your treasure, your gift will make a difference by providing live symphonic music for the Tampa Bay Area.
Your Gift Makes a Difference
Subscriptions and tickets sales only provide for 40% of the revenue needed to support the orchestra; therefore, Annual Fund support is essential to ensure our long-term operation. By establishing a tradition of annual giving, you can have pride in knowing your gift has helped to secure The Florida Orchestra’s position as a leading cultural institution and valued asset in the community.
The Florida Orchestra relies on tax deductible individual donations to the Annual Fund to fulfill our mission to inspire, educate and entertain. Each gift supports the music you hear, the artistic quality you experience and enriches the cultural landscape of Tampa Bay.
