The La Crosse Symphony Orchestra enjoys a broad range of support from the Seven Rivers Region community of which it is a part. Business, individuals, community and private foundations support the LSO through partnerships, sponsorships, and in-kind contributions. Individuals provide generous voluntary support for classical music in the Coulee Region by:
- Purchasing individual and season tickets
- Making philanthropic contributions
- Participating in fundraising events sponsored by the Symphony
- Volunteering time and talents to projects
- Sponsoring concerts and educational events
This voluntary support is critical to the continued success of the LSO since 31% of expenses are covered by ticket sales. Professional organizational management, careful attention to budgets, building the audience base and increased attention to voluntary support has put the orchestra in a stable fiscal position as we enter the 2017-18 season. Through strategic planning, the Executive Director, Music Director, and the Board of Directors of the LSO consider carefully the direction in which the organization should move. The direction toward ever-increasing artistic excellence is clearly proven by the musical repertoire chosen and the sold-out houses throughout the season.
There are many ways that a business, foundation or individual can partner with the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra. With each partnership, there is a unique set of benefits ranging from advertising space to complimentary and discounted tickets for your company’s employees.
