Honor Roll: Current Season Donors

Honor Roll: 2020/21 Season Donors

Thank you to our Family of Supporters!

At the heart of the Santa Barbara Symphony’s mission lies our goal to be an indispensable partner to our community, providing enrichment through inspiring concerts, music education programs, and access for everyone.

Under normal circumstances, ticket sales and other earned income cover less than 35% of our total operating budget. Now, with the cancelled concerts last Spring, and the restrictions currently in place, more than ever, the Santa Barbara Symphony relies on the generosity of contributors to continue our artistic excellence, educational programs and much more.

And we love saying thank you; please visit our donor benefits page to see the ways we acknowledge our supporters.

2020/2021 Season Donors

List reflects donations given in support of the 2020/21 season as of May 12, 2021.  If you do not yet see your name listed, please contact us immediately and we will correct this listing! 

Planning on making your annual donation later in the season? Let us know now, and we will be able to acknowledge your pledge throughout the entire season—regardless of when you donate.
