An Orchestra Needs More Than Just Applause

An orchestra needs a community’s continued patronage and financial support.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Ocean State Pops Orchestra (OSPO) operates with limited funding to fulfill its mission of delivering a full season of outstanding orchestral selections and educational programming to the community.

OSPO depends on grants, donations and financial support from individuals, foundations, businesses, and corporate patrons from throughout Southern New England.

The generosity and participation of each of these entities represent an investment in our community, reinforcing the Orchestra’s mainstay to keep it performing steadily and with greater musical variety and audience impact, year after year.

Your generous financial support of the OSPO is tax-deductible, to the extent allowed by law. Please contact us about giving.

What category of supporting patron will you be? (Choose all that fit!)

Individual Giver

For sheer enjoyment.

Everyone in the audience at an OSPO concert supports us with their presence. Tickets sales, however, provide only a portion of the revenue necessary for the Orchestra’s diverse operational needs.

These include booking venues and rehearsal space; submitting applications and securing permits; printing posters, tickets and program books; maintaining a website and social media presence; and marketing and public awareness initiatives.

We are deeply served when you, our concert patrons, open your hearts and wallets to support us. It helps us reach more people, inspires us to play even greater music, and allows OSPO to thrive as a cultural institution and valued community asset.

Business and Corporate Sponsor – to make a statement

By supporting OSPO, companies large and small can enhance their brands, strengthen customer and client relationships, further their reputation for corporate citizenship and social responsibility, and communicate key messages to loyal audiences.

Sponsoring a performing arts organization is a dynamic positive stance for any company, organization or corporation to publicly convey – and one that reaps goodwill and many benefits.

Corporate contributions are vital to the health and stability of OSPO. We welcome companies of all sizes and contribution levels as corporate partners.

If your company can sponsor an event, concert, series, or entire season, please contact us.
