The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra depends more upon donations from individuals than upon any other source of income.

If you would like to contribute, there are two easy ways:

We happily accept donations via check or via credit card (Visa or MasterCard preferred).

Many employers will match your contribution to the Chamber Orchestra, doubling the amount of your gift. Please ask your company if they have a matching gift program. If so, they will give you a form to include when sending your gift.

Our Executive Director, Kevin A. Marvin will be happy to discuss the many ways you can contribute and be a part of the Chamber Orchestra family.
