Your contribution matters
For over 50 years, your Florida Orchestra has engaged and inspired the people of Tampa Bay with music
that speaks to the human spirit. From riveting concert hall performances to lively youth programs, your
Florida Orchestra is at the heart of those moments that define our community and enrich our lives. A gift to
the Annual Fund directly benefits everyone in the Tampa Bay community who listens to music. It provides
the orchestra the freedom to reach new heights of musical artistry. Epic works, beloved classics, pops and
rock concerts are masterfully performed by gifted musicians, often in collaboration with internationally
renowned guest artists, vocalists, and conductors. These gifts also support our outreach programs that
transport the orchestra out of the concert halls and into the community, benefiting many diverse audiences.
Other, ongoing fundraising efforts at the orchestra include:
The artistic initiative program provides support for many of
your Florida Orchestra’s emerging programs and the expansion
of existing programs. The fund gives us the ability to share
extraordinary and innovative performances with our community
while remaining financially sound.
Through free programs such as our full orchestra performances and
chamber concerts at hospitals, retirement and veterans centers,
boys and girls clubs, and other community venues, as well as
several Pops in the Park concerts, we are able to bring great music
to those unable to come to the concert hall. This fund helps your
Florida Orchestra bring the power of music to heal, bring comfort
to those in need, and to raise the quality of life for everyone in our
Endowment giving is a way to provide long-term stability for your
Florida Orchestra. Gifts to the Endowment are invested to provide
the orchestra with a continuous source of income, which can be
used to promote programs important to our mission. Every gift
to the Endowment is valued greatly, enabling us to provide live
symphonic music for future generations through a minimal annual
withdrawal from the invested funds.
