With ticket sales accounting for less than a third of any symphony orchestra’s income, the remaining budget counts on individual contributions, corporate sponsorships, foundation grants and fund-raising activities.

Donations support our educational programs, musicians, operations, and public concerts. To continue and expand these efforts – as well as to offer exciting seasons like this one – we rely on your support.

All donations are tax-deductible and are recognized in the program book.

The Southwest Michigan Orchestra is a vital community resource. We know from Cornerstone and other surveys that one of the reasons new-comers relocate to the St. Joseph-Benton Harbor area is the quality of life the area affords, including access to various arts and cultural activities such as the Symphony.
