All musicians participating in the The Venice Community Orchestra are volunteer musicians, and tickets are presently not required to attend performances. However, this is not to say that we don’t have expenses and needs! We are presently seeking donations of or for:
- Sheet music parts and scores for orchestra
- Music stands
- Special recordings equipment
- Music stands lights
- Minimal costs for ads, posters, and related communication requirements
- Open donations for VCO future purposes like prizes for younger promising musicians and conductors
At present, the VCO is recognized by the State of Florida as a non-profit organization, and we are working on getting recognized by the IRS as a conforming 501(c) 3 charitable organization. We will be happy to issue a receipt for your donation, but until we obtain our IRS Tax Exemption Certificate, your generosity is not tax-exempt.
If like us you are anxious to see the VCO grow musically as soon as possible and to the highest possible standards, delay no more! Currently sponsorships are sought.
