We Rely on Your Generous Support

The Minneapolis Pops Orchestra is an independent 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to bringing the power and pleasure of live orchestra concerts performed by professional musicians to the Twin Cities community. It is the generosity of hundreds of individual donors, alongside foundations, corporations, and government grants, that sustains and supports this remarkable tradition. For over 70 years, the Pops has fulfilled its mission each summer with performances open to all and absolutely free of charge.

Every summer, the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra raises over $20,000a significant portion of our operating fundsfrom generous concertgoers at the Lake Harriet Bandshell and the Nicollet Island Pavilion. Since we are not able to “pass the hat” this summer, we hope you will consider making a contribution today to help ensure that the Pops family will be able to gather again in the years to come.

A gift of any size is deeply meaningful and will support our commitment to being back and better-than-ever when the time is right.

Large or Small, Your Gift Brings Music to All

Donations from individuals are an important source of funding for the Pops. Over 500 households contribute each year. Helping to remove the economic barrier that can prevent individuals and families from attending high quality, professionally-played orchestra concerts is a wonderful gift!
