Individual Giving


Thank you for considering a donation to the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, a 501(c)(3) organization! Income from ticket sales covers less than one-third of the expenses necessary to maintain an orchestra of this caliber. The rest comes from the incredibly generous individuals, corporations, and institutions that support our mission to enrich our community.

Our donors believe music is critical to a fulfilled life, and they believe in the inspiration and personal relevance of each performance. They are committed to provide incalculable benefits to our children and grandchildren through our award-winning educational programs. They recognize that our concerts stimulate local businesses, and that our local professional musicians enrich Champaign-Urbana as teachers, performers, colleagues, mentors, and friends. They know that our concerts are enjoyed by people of all ages and from all walks of life. And they all agree that a vibrant CUSO makes Champaign-Urbana a better place to live.
