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

Your donation to the Billings Symphony’s Annual Fund is far-reaching. Donations fund performances—from classical concerts to special presentations such as The Nutcracker—and Symphony 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 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. Contact the Symphony Office at (406) 252-3610 for details.
Sponsor a season concert, sponsor a guest artist, or sponsor a special event. Each performance of the Billings Symphony costs more than $50,000, including musicians’ compensation, guest artist fees, facility rental, and production.
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 the Symphony office at 406.252.3610.
This program helps keep our musicians on stage and allows the Billings Symphony to continue to bring quality symphonic music to traditional and new audiences. Contributions begin at $850 and are tax-deductible. Make a donation online >
