Corporate Gifts and Sponsorships
Supporting the BPO is good business. We seek to make meaningful partnerships that support a healthy, creative and artistic community that helps drive the economy in our shared community.
Opportunities to support the Buffalo Philharmonic include special collaborative promotions that recognize the sponsor, align the sponsor’s business with a cultural gem in Western New York, and provide the opportunity for a lot of fun! Sponsorship packages start at $3,500 and can be customized for your company.
The BPO’s Corporate Council is comprised of a group of community business leaders assisting the BPO in our efforts to increase corporate support of the BPO.
