Your gift today to the I Give to the SBSO Because… 85th Anniversary Campaign helps the SBSO to offset monthly operational fixed costs. These SBSO’s fixed costs are generally covered by two fundraising events, Holiday Housewalk, and our upcoming Culinary Concert as well as endowment interest and donations. Even though we cannot perform live, there are still costs to running the SBSO behind the scenes. We have reduced these costs during the COVID-19 pandemic, our operating costs for our 2020-2021 season will still exceed $160,000. But, our current fixed expenses include payroll, payroll taxes, office supplies, auditing and accounting, insurance, rent, internet, and licensing fees. Donations from our recent 85th Anniversary Campaign have helped to cover our previous month’s fixed costs.
We pledge to rise to the challenges we’ve all faced during COVID-19 by returning to live performances as soon as it is safe to do so. Your tax-deductible donation will help us to meet those expenses and return to the stage with exciting new concerts and continue to create magical and memorable experiences here in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
