Support the Festival

GIFTS ARE AT THE HEART of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. More than 70% of the Festival’s cash budget comes from individual, corporate, and foundation gifts, and nearly one-third of the essential goods and services needed to produce the Festival is contributed in-kind each year. The Festival would not be possible without the generosity of donors.

Your gift will make a big difference in our ability to present music by living composers, commission new works, and highlight orchestral music as a living, growing art that speaks to today’s audiences. We invite you to make a secure online gift now by clicking here.

Many Ways to Support the Festival:

In addition to our donors and sponsors, we are fortunate to have 80 families who host musicians and guest artists, 70 businesses that advertise in our program book, and dozens of community volunteers assisting with our outreach projects and ushering at our concerts.

The true worth of these contributions far exceeds their dollar value in the operating budget. They add to the network of relationships that keep the Festival strong and a vital part of the life of our community.
