As a non-profit organization, the Yakima Symphony Orchestra depends upon the support of both individuals and local businesses to help meet the high costs of our concerts and programs that do incalculable good for the community. Concerts can cost upwards of $60,000 to produce, with ticket income covering only a portion of the costs. We depend upon sponsors to help defray the considerable expenses involved in providing great art to the Yakima Valley.
As a YSO sponsor, not only are you helping an area institution help our community, as a business you are reaching a key demographic for a truly low cost. Benefits of sponsorship include:
High Visibility: Your corporate/business name and logo appear in YSO promotional and advertising materials, reaching thousands of YSO patrons and area residents.
Community Support: With a history of more than 40 years creating beautiful music in and opportunities for the Yakima Valley, the YSO is our own orchestra dedicated to improving the quality of life for all residents.
Artistic Quality: With a world-class conductor and the finest musicians from throughout the Pacific Northwest, the YSO is truly the finest performing arts organization in Central Washington.
Prime Location: Our performance venues reflect the excellent quality of our organization and are the perfect locations for corporate entertaining.
Tailored Package: The staff of the YSO will work with you to tailor a personalized sponsorship package that meets your unique needs. Benefits of sponsorship include name/logo recognition in print advertising and on our website; recognition in our newsletters; on-stage recognition during concerts; subscriptions, and more.
Chair Sponsorship: Our orchestra musicians are the heart and soul of the YSO – their incomparable artistry is the very essence of the YSO “sound” that audiences thrill to each and every concert season. The costs of presenting only the finest musicians are considerable; by far the largest portion of our budget is made up of the payroll for our orchestra members.
