SFO Patrons

Becoming a Patron gives you the opportunity to combine charitable (and tax-free) giving with involvement in an artistic charity and of course by supporting us in this way you are also supporting other charities as well.  This is because the continued existence of the SFO means we can put on concerts at which local charities – sometimes but not always with musical themes – can do bucket collections from which they benefit.  The SFO also makes donations to musical charities from time to time.  Some charities which have benefited over recent years are Scots Fiddle Festival, Niel Gow Fiddle Festival and Nomad Beat).
