The ESO is a charitable organization, meaning that fundraising is a critical component of the ESO’s annual activities. This year we will fundraise nearly $2-million – or 25% of our budget – from the community and people like you just to balance the books. Please join us in our efforts to be the best possible orchestra for Edmonton by making a donation today.
I Enjoy A Great Night Out
Whether you’re hosting a client, it’s date night, a special occasion or you’re spending time with friends and family; with ticket prices as low as $20 the ESO offers outstanding entertainment value for your dollar.
It’s Better When It’s Live
The floor-shaking rumble of the Timpani; the crisp movement of the conductor’s baton; a shared experience with 1,700 fellow music lovers – these cannot be recreated at home or on your iPod.
The ESO Is Good For Edmonton
Our city has a tremendous arts record. As a flagship organization in Edmonton, the ESO brings profile to our community through recordings and broadcasts, by nurturing local musicians and by bringing international artists and conductors to perform.
The ESO Is Good For My Business
People and corporations want to move to a city that offers access to first-rate education, recreation and culture.
My Tax-Deductible Donation Is A Gift That Gives Back
Every dollar counts toward making the ESO the best possible orchestra for Edmonton. Albertans enjoy a 50-cent tax credit for every dollar donated over $200/year.
Donate shares and publicly traded securities and be exempt from paying tax on the capital gain. You also get a tax receipt for the value of the donated shares, so you can give today without directly affecting your pocketbook.
I Do It For The Children
We want our children to have every opportunity – to be exposed to Mozart, Gershwin and Tchaikovsky while their senses are fresh with wonder.
I Do It For Me!
Every reason is a great reason to donate to the ESO - but most importantly, do it for you! You deserve the exquisite joy of hearing a brilliant piece of music; experiencing the power of live performance; the anticipation of applause; and best of all, unforgettable ESO concert experiences for years to come.
