Support the BSO

Why give?

The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are able to present outststanding concerts and engage the best artists through ticket sales, membership dues and financial contributions from individuals and businesses. Approximately 40% of our income is derived from individual donations. Every dollar counts and every contribution is put to use supporting the concerts that the BSO presents every year.
