Help Us Continue our Mission to Bring you World-Class Chamber Music
The San Antonio Chamber Music Society is a non-profit, 501c (3) organization, managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. In order to continue to keep concert ticket prices affordable, it is critical that we have support from individuals and businesses in our community. Donations can be made in many ways as well as a full range of magnitude. Gifts of any amount are gratefully received and applied to the various costs of presenting the concerts, such as performance hall rental, program and brochure printing, piano and sound equipment rental, as well as advertising.
Become a MemberIndividuals who support the Society at the Friend, Patron, Benefactor, Leadership or Sustaining Member levels, as well as Gifts designated for specific purposes are recognized in our concert program. Donors will receive acknowledgment of their donations for tax purposes – all contributions will be fully deductible to the extent allowed by law. In addition, donors that contribute at the Friend level and above will be invited to enjoy post-concert dinners with the performers for a nominal per person dinner cost.

Underwriting a Concert: Artist Fees
Artist fees are the largest expense incurred in presenting concerts of internationally known ensembles. You or your organization can show your support for world-class music in San Antonio by underwriting the artist fees for one of our concerts, which range from $6,000 to $20,000 or more depending on the particular group. The organization or individual underwriting the artist fees will be recognized at the concert and in the concert program.
One way to help ensure that the San Antonio Chamber Music Society can continue to present the high quality Chamber Music concert experiences to future generations is to include the SACMS as a part of your estate planning.
Memorials & Honorariums
Your donation to the Society in memory of someone who loved chamber music is a special gift. Likewise your donation to honor someone on a birthday or other significant milestone will please the honoree and benefit the Society.
Educational Outreach Event Fees
As a part of our mission to foster the appreciation of chamber music in our community, the San Antonio Chamber Music Society sponsors educational outreach events by the artists performing in our Sunday concert series. These amazing outreach events range in cost from $1000 to $2500. You can see some of the recent outreach events in our photo and video gallery.
