Why Become a Friend of the TSO?

The Friends of the TSO provide a critically important base of funding to support the TSO’s acclaimed performances, and vital community and education programs. Every gift makes a difference! All donations of $20 or more will be recognized with a charitable tax receipt. Friends donor benefits start with a gift of $100 or more annually.

Make a Friends Donation

To have the greatest impact, consider a monthly gift of $10 to become a Friend of the TSO. As a committed Music by the Month donor, you will provide a steady and reliable source of funding for the Orchestra in a way that’s convenient for you.


Your monthly gifts and recognition will continue without interruption, though you can contact us at any time to cancel or adjust your gift amount. The Friends of the TSO is an annual donor membership program. A minimum full-year commitment is required to maintain access to donor benefits.

Friends Donor Benefits

We will be launching a new donor benefits model for our 2022/23 season in the late summer/early fall of 2022.

  • Invitations to exclusive donor events—including Donor Open Rehearsals
  • Curated behind-the-scenes TSO digital content
  • Priority access to TSO programming, such as advance notice of newly scheduled performances

Your Gift at Work

Philanthropy is a significant source of funding for the TSO every year, and now more than ever as we celebrate our 100th anniversary.

Your support will help fund:

  • Our exceptional concert programming on the main stage.
  • The artistic growth and engagement of our talented musicians.
  • The commissioning of new works to expand the orchestral repertoire.
  • Music-education programs like School Concerts for grades K-12 and Digital Teacher Resources.
  • The development of next-generation artists through the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra (TSYO), our Resident Conductor and Affiliate Composer positions, and our partnership with Women in Musical Leadership.
  • Relaxed Performances designed specifically to be sensitive to and welcoming of neurodiverse audiences, including patrons on the autism spectrum, those with sensory and communication disorders, people with learning disabilities, or those who simply want a more relaxed concert experience.
  • Health and wellbeing programs like TSOUND Connections—which uses music and technology to connect seniors in case with TSO musicians to reduce social isolation and support positive mental health—as well as our burgeoning partnerships with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, the YMCA of Greater Toronto, and CAMH.
