Matching Gifts

​Double or triple the impact of your donation with a matching gift. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees.

The ECSO gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the following businesses who have matched their employees/retirees contributions:

Charter Oak Federal Credit Union, IBM, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Symantec, and United Technologies.

Your Contribution Helps Us To:

  • Provide exciting musical opportunities to thousands of area students
  • Supply low price tickets to our concerts for students, active military personnel and veterans, and senior members of our community
  • Bring orchestral music and world-class talent to our region regularly to enrich the cultural offerings of southeastern Connecticut

Your generosity towards our organization’s mission makes you an important partner in the execution of our mission to inspire, educate, and connect our communities through live orchestral music.

If you are at least 70 ½ years old, you can make a distribution to the ECSO from your IRA without paying income taxes! Please make sure you or your advisor note your name and contact information on your contribution so we can properly identify and acknowledge your gift as a QCD for your IRA.

Initiate this gift as early as possible – the funds must be deposited by the ECSO by December 31 to count towards the current year.
