Support the DSO



Donations to the DuPage Symphony Orchestra keep classical music alive in your community.


Your support helps:

  • Inspire people of all ages to develop an appreciation for music.

  • Provide real-life orchestral experiences for area students.

  • Create an outlet for talented musicians to share their passion of music with the community.


The COVID-19 closure significantly reduced donations and eliminated ticket revenues for much of 2020 and 2021.  As we return to the stage for a joyful 2022-2023 concert season, funding from corporations, grants and individuals like you transforms hearts, minds, and communities through music and helps continue the DSO legacy.

The DuPage Symphony Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed.

  • Anyone past age 70 ½ who has to take Required Minimum Distributions each year from their Traditional IRA can reap a tax savings by having part of (or all of) their RMD amount sent directly from their retirement plan account to the charity(ies) of their choosing. This results in a dollar for dollar reduction of their taxable income and thus a direct tax savings based on their marginal tax rate, irrespective of whether they claim the Standard Deduction or have enough to itemize. Please check with your own tax adviser for additional details.
