The orchestra, like most arts organizations, runs on a tight budget and relies on much goodwill from its volunteers. The OCO has been a recipient of grants from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Town of Oakville Cultural grants, and sponsorships from private individuals and Oakville businesses, recognizing the great musical value the OCO brings to our town. The raised funds cover an honorarium for our exceptional Music Director and our General Manager, insurance, rental of facilities, printing and advertising costs.

In an effort to diversify our financial support and to develop greater stability as the organization matures, we seek additional friends -corporate and private- who, with their pledged donation to the OCO, bolster the cultural richness of Oakville.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how you can support the OCO and build your backyard community.

In addition to providing meaningful support of a strong local amateur music group enhancing your local community, our corporate sponsors receive:

  • Public recognition of your sponsorship on our website and social media sites.
  • Advertising space in the programs of the orchestra’s season concerts (4 issues in total).
  • A number of complementary concert tickets and the possibility to purchase more at discount rates.

The Oakville Chamber Orchestra is a non-profit charitable organization.
