DONATING TO THE PEI SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Thank you for considering a donation to the PEISO. Ticket sales, fund raisers, and government funding account
for approximately 75% of the PEISO’s operating budget. We rely on generous contributions from our supporters to
make up the difference. Through the financial support of music lovers like you, the PEISO can continue to enrich
our audiences each season, and invite talented musicians to perform with us. We are truly dedicated to making
music accessible to all Islanders and your support makes it possible.
There are several ways you can help:
- Adopt-a-Musician: Through our Adopt-a-Musician program, you can sponsor a particular member of our ensemble and see your money at work at our concerts. You will have the opportunity to meet your sponsored player at a reception after one of our concerts, you will be credited in our program, and you will receive an official tax receipt.
- Examples of “adoption” rates:
- Concertmaster $2,000;
- Section chair $650;
- Regular musician $550;
- Student musician $450.
- Composer-in-Residence fund: We have a new fund that allows donors to target their gift toward this program, an initiative with Canadian composer Jim O’Leary for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons.
- Donate a listed security: Under the new Capital Gains Taxation rules, the capital gains taxes on an increased value of an investment can be avoided by donating listed securities to a registered charity, like the PEI Symphony Society, in return for a tax receipt.
- Donate to the endowment fund: An endowment fund was set up some time ago by the late Rev. Garland Brooks. It was his dream to build a fund which, through investments, would earn a steady interest income for the PEISO. The fund has grown to over $30,000.
- Make a general donation: Your donation will be credited in our program, and an official tax receipt will be issued.
