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 65% 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:
Section chair $650;
Regular musician $550;
Student musician $450.
- 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.
- Make a general donation: Your donation will be credited in our program, and an official tax receipt will be issued.
- Purchase a corporate sponsorship package and receive valuable perks for your staff and clients, and extend your marketing reach here in PEI to a valuable target community, along with recognition as a patron of the arts in PEI!
If you have any questions concerning donations or our sponsorship programs, please contact our Administrator at 902-892-4333 or 902-218-1044 (cell).
