DONATIONS & SPONSORSHIPS
YOUR OPPORTUNITY to be part of bringing top-quality music to OUR COMMUNITY
For more than 25 years, Naples Community Orchestra has brought exceptional performances at an affordable cost to Southwest Florida. Our goal includes not only top quality musical productions that enrich the lives of our local audiences, but unique opportunities for students to attend and participate in classical and popular musical productions at no cost to them.
Our dedicated musicians, including Artistic Director Max Rabinovitsj, volunteer many hours of their time and talent for practice, rehearsals, and performances. Our audiences tell us that we bring outstanding music into their lives, and over the years they have graciously helped make this possible. All classical orchestras face the challenges of increasing costs for music production, appropriate venues and providing educational opportunities at a time when traditional institutions can offer less and less to audiences both young and old.
Please help by donating to or sponsoring our 2021 Season. Your contribution will allow NCO to continue to bring the very best in community orchestra performance to the Naples area. We are a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. To inquire about matching donation programs, memorial bequests or stock donations, please contact our Treasurer at [email protected].
