Become a Supporter of the Orchestra

Your support is deeply and sincerely appreciated. We run our orchestra on almost no budget at all; we have no source of income except for the generosity of you and people like you.

ALL DONATIONS TO MUSICA BELLA ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We need money for the following purposes and more: to pay the rent for our space; to buy or rent music and to mail it to our musicians; to pay the licensing fee for the right to perform music that’s not in the public domain; to buy music stands; to print our programs; to have our concerts recorded; to produce the CDs from those recordings; for mailings to our postal mailing list; to produce our advertising and public-relations materials; to make a very small token payment to our soloists, if we can afford it for that particular concert (usually not); for instrument rental (such as percussion instruments) or tuning (such as a piano) or moving (such as percussion, harp, harpsichord); to pay for this Web site — and, like we said, more.

The members and management, including the conductor, of the orchestra are unpaid. Any deficit we, the management of the orchestra, experience between income and expenses is made up out of our own pockets.

Any donation at all is a huge help, and we thank you in advance! You may use any of the methods listed below:
Donate tax-deductible cash or check at a concert.
Send us a tax-deductible check (click here for instructions), or give it to us at a concert.
Click on the PayPal logo to send us a secure tax-deductible donation electronically.

Become an Angel

If you donate at least $10 more than the suggested donation at the door (our normal suggested donation is $15, making a $25 donation necessary to qualify for this), we’ll list you for a year both right here and in our printed programs.

Musica Bella Concert CDs available
If you make a donation of at least $50.00, in addition to your name being listed as mentioned above, in appreciation for your larger donation we’ll give you a CD set (in other words, one complete concert, whether it’s on one CD or two) of the live recording of (almost) any of our orchestra or chamber music concerts, your choice. (To see the listing of available concerts, click on the link immediately below.) And for every additional $25 that you donate at the same time, we’ll give you an additional concert CD set.

Listed in approximate chronological order, left column, then right column.
An asterisk means that the donation was made specifically for our Piano Fund.
If your name is misspelled, it’s probably because we couldn’t read your handwriting.
Please let us know the correct spelling, and we’ll be most happy to fix it.
