Donations and Support

Your gift to the Marin Symphony helps symphonic music thrive in our community.

Live symphonic music lifts our spirits and improves our quality of life. It touches our emotions like no other form of entertainment. Thanks to the generosity of audience members, concert sponsors, and foundations, the Marin Symphony has been fulfilling its mission for over 62 years.

Did you know that only 40% of the Marin Symphony’s operating revenue comes from ticket sales? As an individual donor, you play a vital role in helping us share the profound and transformative experience of live music. Your gifts provide valuable support for season events, youth education, and programs for the underserved. As a donor, you receive priority seating assignments. Your gift at any level is vital and appreciated.

Connecting to community with Symphony Kids
We believe the enchantment of live symphonic music should be accessible for all members of the community. As such, the Symphony donates more than 150 tickets per concert to participating community youth programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of the North Bay, Sunny Hills Services, St. Vincent’s Timothy Murphy School and the Boys & Girls Club of Marin & Southern Sonoma Counties on behalf of subsidies from our donors and sponsors. “Symphony Kids” allows youth of all ages to experience the thrill of a live symphonic orchestra — some for the first time — and to understand the value of music in our lives. Thanks to all of the donors and sponsors who contribute to this program!
