Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SPCO Audience Match?
The SPCO Audience Match is a fundraising initiative encouraging recent SPCO donors to inspire fellow SPCO audience members to make a new gift to the orchestra. Every spring, members of the SPCO community have increased their own giving to encourage you to join them in supporting the SPCO. SPCO Audience Match will return during the spring of 2023.

Donations from audience members like you are the SPCO’s largest and most important source of support — thank you!

What gifts qualify for the SPCO Audience Match?
There are several ways to contribute to the Audience Match:
For those making a new gift (date TBD):
Make a new gift of any size — a one-time gift or a recurring monthly Sustainer gift — and the full amount of your new gift will be matched by the support of recent SPCO donors.

Monthly Sustainer giving is another way to make your support go further: It reduces our fundraising costs and allows more of your gift to directly support our mission. Start your Sustainer gift today, and each monthly gift made before June 30 will be matched by the SPCO Audience Match!

To learn more about the ways to give, visit thespco.org/contribute.

100% of gifts made as part of the Audience Match go to the SPCO’s Annual Fund, our largest and most important source of support. Thank you!
