Ticket Donation

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Winspear Centre are proud to support the wonderful work of the many charitable organizations that make our community a better place to live. Throughout the year, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Winspear Centre donate tickets to various charitable fundraisers across Alberta.

Due to the high number of requests we receive and the success of the program, we regret that we can not fill all requests. Priority will be given as follows:

  1. Non-profit arts organizations.
  2. Non-profit education organizations.
  3. Non-profit medical organizations.
  4. Sponsors and affiliates of the ESO raising funds for not-for-profit organizations.

Consideration will also be given to events that:

  • Recognize the ESO through signage and/or program mention.
  • Allow cross-promotion opportunities and reciprocal donations.

Although these organizations will be given priority, not all requests can be filled. In order to be considered, please abide by our guidelines.
