Donors, business sponsors, and philanthropic investors have an absolutely huge positive impact on Suffolk Philharmonic (SPO). It simply cannot be overestimated in enabling the organization to touch the lives of many thousands in Suffolk who stand to benefit from easy local access to outstanding music.


Suffolk Philharmonic (SPO) is an extraordinary resource, not only adding to Suffolk’s considerable cultural offer and economic investment, but in the "wow factor" of the opportunities SPO gives young people, and in its contribution towards helping combat loneliness and rural isolation, and in its ethos of making world class professional music accessible in Suffolk in venues large and small.


I wonder if you realise just how much you can help by being a donor or a sponsor? 


As a registered charity SPO is entirely reliant on philanthropic investment and sponsorship to supplement ticket revenue, because ticket revenue alone can never cover the costs of music of this quality if tickets are going to be affordable.


And the SPO has a great deal to offer you in return: it could be as a business sponsor with 12 months of branding, client entertaining and CSR packages tailored to your own unique business requirements. Or you could support purely privately, as a philanthropist who shares SPO’s passion for ensuring music reaches those who can benefit so profoundly from it.
