Donate & Get Involved
The ISO greatly appreciates your patience and understanding as we navigate this challenging and unexpected situation. Your generous support is vital in helping our Orchestra fulfill its mission, and is especially appreciated during challenging moments such as this one. We hope you will consider making a donation below if you are able.
Another way to support the ISO during his time is to consider donating your unused tickets back to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Your donation is fully tax deductible and will help to offset the costs associated with cancelling these concerts. If you would like to donate your tickets, please fill out the form here.
The ISO plays a critical role in enhancing the quality of life for area residents both artistically and economically, as great symphonic music is an essential element of a vibrant community. We have successfully undertaken a unique and ambitious plan to grow audiences with innovative programs and new collaborations in recent seasons – and subscriptions to the ISO are at their highest level in five years! At the same time, it is crucial that everyone in the ISO family recognize that ticket sales only cover about one-third of our operating expenses.
Please consider a gift today. We simply couldn't sustain this artistic gem without the help of many dedicated people like you!
Below are some examples of what your donation can help fund at the ISO:
