Stratford Summer Music is a not for profit, registered charity. Along with the support of various levels of government we rely on and are grateful for our supporters for everything from financial gifts, to volunteer work, billeting, advertising, in- kind gifts and Aeroplan miles in order to present 6 weeks of the best in Canadian and International music each summer.

Stratford Summer Music believes everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy musical performances. This is why half of our presentations are free or Pay What You Can, and the remaining tickets are priced as reasonably as possible. Ticket sales account for just 20% of our total revenue. This means that other sources of income for the festival such as  government grants, corporate sponsorships and individual donations are vital to keep ticket prices low. Your contribution will be acknowledged in our performance programme and online. All financial gifts will be recognized with an official tax receipt for the maximum amount allowed by Canada Revenue Agency.

Your gift will be acknowledged in one of the following donor categories:

Pianissimo               $       50  -  $99        


$     100 -  $249
Mezzo Piano $     250 -  $499
