Each season Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber Singers present performances of great choral masterworks, little-known gems of the orchestral repertoire, world premieres by Northwest composers and much more, all at affordable ticket prices (including free youth tickets). Unfortunately, ticket proceeds provide only a fraction of our operating costs. In order to continue our mission of bringing great music to Seattle-area audiences, we depend on financial support from individuals, foundations and corporations.
Every gift, no matter what size, enables us to perform more music and reach more people. Donors are acknowledged in our concert programs (unless they prefer to remain anonymous) and receive special benefits, including invitations to exclusive events and discounted ticket offers.
Between now and December 31, 2019, all donations to OSSCS will be matched two-to-one, up to $50,000, thanks to a remarkable pledge of support from David Zapolsky and Lynn Hubbard. This means that for every $100 you give, OSSCS receives $300. If we can make it all the way to $50,000, OSSCS will be in line to receive a total of $150,000.

Corporate Matching Gifts
Many employers — including Boeing, Microsoft and Starbucks, among many others — offer Employee Matching Gift Programs that multiply your individual contribution. If you are associated with a company that matches gifts to arts organizations, we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity by obtaining a Matching Gift form from your company’s personnel office and forwarding it to us. Please contact us (206-682-5208, email@example.com) for further assistance.
Gifts of Securities
Making a gift of appreciated stock to OSSCS can provide a significant tax advantage because you may deduct the full market value of the stock at the time of your gift and avoid capital-gains tax. Consult your financial planner and tax adviser to learn how this would best benefit you. To initiate a stock transfer, please refer to the instructions linked below, and e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-682-5208 if you require assistance.
