Donate: You have two options for making your donation:

You will need a major credit card and a valid email address. Your receipt will be sent via email and will indicate the donation was made to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for the benefit of the orchestra.
Let us handle the donation for you:
Contact Sarasota Orchestra's Grants Coordinator, Kay Semrod, before 4:30 pm on Monday, March 4th and we will process your gift early in the 36 hours to increase your chances of being matched.
Call Kay Semrod at (941) 487-2741 or email KSemrod@SarasotaOrchestra.org.
Please note, any matched portion of your gift made through the program cannot be applied toward Sarasota Orchestra's annual fund gifts or Maestro Society membership.
