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. 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 form that speaks to today’s audiences. The Festival would not be possible without the generosity of our donors.
