On Summer Break See You August 13. Click Here to Donate to Live Classical Music

Donate Today

As you know it is our mission to make classical music available to anyone who wishes to attend Noontime Concerts. Each week on Tuesday at 12:30 PM we invite you to join us in the sanctuary at Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral at the crossroads of San Francisco’s Financial District and Chinatown to enjoy a free concert played by world-class musicians.

If for any reason you are unable to attend a live concert, we are now broadcasting them in real-time on this website.  The concert videos are then post-produced in 4K video with best-in-class high-fidelity sound for anyone to enjoy at any time.

These exceptional (and expensive) productions are only possible with your financial support. And for 34 years your support has enabled Noontime Concerts to being its unique musical offering to the San Francisco Bay Area and now the entire world.

We are profoundly grateful for your support. Please include a generous donation to Noontime Concerts in your charitable giving.

Employer matching donations:  Many employers—especially those in the philanthropic-focused Bay Area—provide donor-matching benefits to employees for charities of their choice. This is an excellent opportunity to expand your donation power and help Noontime Concerts support its mission. Please ask your benefits coordinator how you can designate Noontime Concerts for a matching donation.

Corporate community campaigns: Many companies in the Bay Area participate in an annual giving campaign, with partners like the United Way.  Employee participation in these types of campaigns is another easy way to contribute by designating Noontime Concerts as a donation recipient.

Legacy gifts:  We would be honored to be a beneficiary of your trust plans.  Such legacy gifts are a tremendous show of support for our organization and a reflection of the joy it has provided you over the years.  It also is a noble way to support the future of live classical music and ensure that audiences can continue to enjoy these rich cultural experiences for years to come.
