Support the LCSO
The Las Cruces Symphony Association is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization. To carry out our mission, the support of forward-thinking individuals and businesses that recognize the value of the arts in our community is essential.
Ticket sales cover approximately 40% of our annual cost of operation, therefore, we rely on the generosity of the community to keep our Orchestra strong. Please consider all the ways you can make a difference and support our efforts.
Become a Patron! Become a season subscriber and enjoy benefits such as guaranteed seating, concert exchanges and tax benefits for released seats if you are unable to attend a performance.
Release Your Tickets For Resale! If you are unable to attend a performance please consider releasing your tickets for resale. Simply call the Symphony office, 575-646-3709, before the close of business the Friday prior to the concerts to release your tickets so we may offer them to other patrons.
Join the Guild! The Guild of the Las Cruces Symphony Association helps raise money for the Orchestra’s Educational Outreach programs. Annual dues are $35.
Another opportunity for individual giving is through the Thomas Tate Memorial Endowed Donor Advised Fund. Established by Donna Tate under the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico, this fund is in honor of Tom Tate, a longtime supporter of the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra. Money from the fund will be used to support the Orchestra through student musician scholarships for musical summer camps and auditions, continuing education for orchestra musicians, and the commissioning of new works. For information on the Thomas Tate Memorial Fund, please contact the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico, 521-4794
