The Columbus Symphony Orchestra is grateful for the generous support we receive from individuals, foundations, corporations, and volunteers. The CSO depends on contributed income for over 70 percent of its annual budget. Ticket revenue covers only less than 30 percent of the orchestra’s production costs. This fiscal year we need to raise nearly $5 million in contributed income to balance our $7.8 million budget. Your support keeps the unique and powerful art of the symphonic experience alive in our community.
