Help Us Enrich Lives through Music

As a patron of the Billings Symphony, there are several ways you can support what the organization does throughout the year and into the future. For a not-for-profit, every dollar counts!

Donate

Ticket sales cover less than half of the BSOC’s operating expenses, making contributed income and volunteer time essential to the Symphony’s survival. In this way, the BSOC is no different from any other American orchestra. The difference is that this orchestra and chorale is yours. View the donor levels and benefits.

Annual Fund

Your donation to the BSOC’s Annual Fund is far-reaching. Donations fund performances—from classical concerts to special presentations such as The Nutcracker—and BSOC outreach efforts. Your support also helps offset the organization’s administrative costs such as musician honoraria, facility rental, stage crew and production costs, guest artist fees, and more.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a creative way of supporting a non-profit organization that enables philanthropic donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their annual disposable income. View more details here, or contact the Symphony Office at 406.252.3610.

Endowment

The Billings Symphony endowment ensures the organization’s future. Funds donated to the Billings Symphony endowment are invested for the organization’s ongoing sustainability and stability. Interest from these investments is used to support the organization’s annual operating expenses. For more information about making a planned or endowment gift, contact BSOC Executive Director Ignacio Barrón Viela at 406.252.3610.
