Support During and Post-Covid
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.
BOARD PRESIDENT BARB ROSS
For more than 62 years, the LCSO has been a leader among the arts in Las Cruces, employing more than 70 musicians who live and work in our area. Despite the fact that we are not presently able to hold concerts, we still have many operating costs.
Ticket sales only support about 40 percent of the cost of producing concerts. That is why we depend on fundraising and generous donations from our patrons and sponsors. Your donation will help us be prepared to return to live performances in 2021.
In addition, your donations bring together our musicians and music lovers. Your support truly helps inspire, educate, and engage the community we are honored to serve. Live music is emotionally inspiring for all ages. It is also good for business and is part of the quality of life many look for when moving here. Your donation will enable the artistry of the LCSO to continue to be experienced throughout the region, bringing the highest quality symphonic music to our community.
Please consider clicking the donation button and making a contribution to support the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra and help us rise to the challenge.
Please consider all the ways you can make a difference and support our efforts once we are able to again perform for you.

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.
