Donations & Support

Your financial support is very much needed as ticket sales pay for only 60% of the cost of the performances. Your contribution is in addition to the cost of the tickets. Contributors are acknowledged in each concert program.

Ways to Give


Secure donations made in this way go directly to SOPAA and this PayPal account can only be used for donations.

When You Order Tickets

The staff at the Vern Riffe Center can take donations when you make your order over the phone or in person. Just tell them how much to add to your order.

By Mail

Check Donations may be sent to:
