NCO Donation FAQ’s

What is the simplest way to send my gift?

Click here.  Through this link or by scanning the QR code above, you can quickly make a donation to the National Contemporary Orchestra with a credit or debit card.


Does the NCO get every dollar of my credit/debit card donation? 

There is a fee associated with the QR code process that the NCO will have to cover.  However, to ensure that every penny of your donation goes to the NCO, we ask that you choose the “Add to cover my processing fees” option so the bank knows not to take the fee out your donation.


Is my donation tax deductible?

For all tax questions, speak with your tax professional. 

While the NCO cannot legally offer financial advice, we can tell you that our own accountants have assured us that any donations made directly to the NCO are eligible for tax benefits come April 15. 

What can I use to make my donation?

Thanks to modern technology, the NCO can accept donations online with a credit/debit card (click here), a physical check or money order, or even through a tax-free direct contribution from your IRA.
