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. We still need to raise $3500 to complete our 2017-18 season expense payments - AND we need to raise next season's budget!

    

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.

Giving is, of course, much more than tax brackets and charitable deductions. Your charitable gifts support the mission we share—to improve the quality of life in our region.

 

Please send your gift to Southland Symphony at 536 N Euclid Ave, Ontario, CA 91762

Or - give online today!

Cash, checks and credit cards are welcome.

 

 

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.

SSO Chorus at Carnegie Hall

The SSO Chorus took part in a Presidents' Day performance of the Mozart Requiem. Our singers and VIP guests paid their own way to get there! The concert was fantastic - We will receive a copy of an archival DVD, and plan to have a "viewing party" (Date and time TBA) and we hope to return for another event perhaps next year! If you would like to help us, please donate today!
