Give your support to YOUR Symphony. Please.

We are bringing wonderful live symphonic music to the Southern California.

Please help us bring the best music to our community, Support the Symphony with your gift today!

 

 

 

Giving -  We need your help to fully fund this season's budget.  Our annual budget for the 2019-20 season is about $30,000. As of the start of the season we are still in need of raising over $20, 000 of that! PLEASE HELP TODAY!

 

 

We hope you will consider making good use of the income tax charitable deduction by supporting the Southland Symphony Orchestra. Your gift can significantly reduce your income taxes, while providing much-needed support for the Orchestra.

 

The Southland Symphony Orchestra is a tax exempt 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization under IRS section 170. Donors can deduct contributions made to us under IRC Section 170. We are also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522. We are a public charity.

 

Consult a tax or financial planning professional to get the best advice for your situation.

Why do we need YOUR support?

 

The Southland Symphony Orchestra relies significantly on the generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations and government entities. While “concert door donations” are of tremendous help, they cover less than one-third of the Orchestra's operating budget. Your support will help the organization achieve a balanced budget each year.

 

Every great city deserves a great orchestra, and as one of Ontario's key new cultural treasures, it is critical that the SSO continues to provide the community with its core group of world-class musicians. The SSO provides audiences of all ages with high quality artistic performances, while bringing internationally renowned guest artists to the Inland Empire. In addition, the Orchestra is looking to the future, planning to serve more than 10,000+ students annually through inspirational and educational programs and outreach initiatives.

 

You can make a difference today by supporting the Southland Symphony Orchestra with a gift of any size. We invite you to make a tax-deductible donation which will help to sustain the SSO as YOUR Orchestra, while enhancing the Orchestra's impact through critical arts education offerings for area youth.
