Christmas is the Season  for Giving
"Giving Tuesday"
  November 27, 2018

The Clear Lake Symphony has joined “Giving Tuesday”, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.  “GivingTuesday” is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. 
 There will be envelopes in the Christmas “Pops” Concerts program to make a Christmas donation to the Symphony.  Bring your check or cash to make a donation to the Clear Lake Symphony.  Credit cards will not be accepted.  If you are unable to attend the concerts or would like to mail your donation, click on "Donation Form", print  and mail it with your donation to: Clear Lake Symphony, P.O. Box 890582, Houston, TX  77289-0582.  Donors will be recognized on the Symphony's "Hall of Honor" for donations of $100 or more on this web site and in the Symphony's concert programs.
Your donation will allow the Clear Lake Symphony to continue to present exceptional classical music for the residents of the Bay Area, to provide opportunities for Bay Area musicians to create a variety of musical experiences for the enjoyment of the community,  enhance the music education of the community through the annual Youth Concerto Competitions and to participate in the Music-in-Schools education programs in area schools at no cost to the students. Thank you for supporting the Bay Area's own Clear Lake Symphony, an IRS 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
