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.

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.
