Why Give?

Why Give?

Because Music has the power to change the world

This is Gustavo Dudamel’s core conviction, and it inspires everything the LA Phil does. A gift to support the Centennial Campaign – at any level – is a vote of confidence in Dudamel’s vision of an orchestra that is open, diverse, creative and aspirational.

Why Do We Need Your Support?

The LA Phil is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of donors to raise nearly 1/3 of our budget each year. 

In order to keep ticket prices from rising, continue to pay competitive artist salaries and provide one of the largest suites of arts education programs in Southern California, we depend on the significant investment of philanthropists like you, who share our values.

Why Give to the Endowment?

In terms of number of concerts, budget size, investments in community and artist wages, the LA Phil is one of the top orchestras nationally, but the LA Phil’s endowment falls behind every other top-tier orchestra in the country. Endowment support is an essential investment in the future that donors can make today.
