Did you know that ticket sales only provide one third of what’s needed for PBO to operate each season? Your gift enables PBO to fulfill its mission—bringing you the music you love, delivering critical educational programs to our community, and preserving the legacy of historically informed performance for generations to come.

Because PBO is tax exempt, supporters who donate appreciated stock will receive a deduction for the market value of the gift and may also avoid paying capital gains tax.
If you have made contributions into a donor-advised fund (DAF), you may recommend that Philharmonia be the recipient of a gift. Please contact your sponsoring organization with this request. If you wish for your gift to support a specific project or initiative, please ask your sponsoring organization to include that information, otherwise the gift will be considered unrestricted. Distributions from a DAF do not qualify to receive any valued donor benefits and can typically not be used to sponsor an event.
You may also make gifts through a bequest, trust, charitable gift annuity, or through your retirement plan or life insurance policy to meet your Qualified Charitable Distribution. Gifts to support other initiatives including the PBO Endowment, special projects, and events may also be made. To discuss these options, please contact Jonathan Neumann, Director of Development, at email@example.com.
