Individual Giving

Thank you to everyone who has supported TFO over this past year. Even though your concert experience is different from your last visit, it is still our mission to inspire, strengthen and heal our community through music. We rely on your donations to power everything we do, and in these extraordinary times, we need your support more than ever. To make a contribution, please visit FloridaOrchestra.org/donate. A complete list of supporters can be found by clicking here.

Why Support TFO?

Ticket revenue covers only about 40 percent of TFO’s operating costs, so we depend on the generosity of our community to support everything we do:

    • More than 130 concerts in 20 venues each season across Tampa Bay
    • Dozens of musician videos and online content through TFO at Home
    • Free community events such as Pops in the Park, Sing Out Tampa Bay, Instrument Petting Zoos, small ensemble concerts and more
    • Free Masterworks tickets for kids ages 5-18
    • Youth Concerts for 26,000 local students each year
    • Educational programs such after-school violin lessons and in-school instruction

We work tirelessly to make live music accessible for everyone, whether in a concert hall, online, or in the community. Your support makes a direct impact on The Florida Orchestra’s mission to build our Tampa Bay community through the transformative power of music, now and for generations to come.

More ways to give

Monthly giving is a convenient, affordable way to support the music you love. Our Encore Giving program is easy to do through a credit or debit card, and can be changed anytime.

Your charitable donation matters. Donors aged 70 ½ and older can instruct their IRA administrators to make a distribution directly to The Florida Orchestra; IRA distributions made to charitable institutions are not be treated as taxable income.

Interested in making a gift of stock? Some donors choose to support the orchestra by transferring securities rather than making a direct contribution of cash.
