Support the IBO

Your support is vital and much appreciated. The Irish Baroque Orchestra relies on supports from many different organisations and individuals to sustain our work. The IBO’s core funding comes from the Arts Council in the form of an annual grant. Other funding is provided via Dublin City Council, and through support-in-kind initiatives, and we also actively pursue partnerships with commercial sponsors and philanthropic donors. Your support makes a signficant contribution to ensuring the future of the IBO, ensuring the future of Baroque music in Ireland, for audiences (young and old) as well as the talented early music instrumentalists in our orchestra. IBO performances are vital, inspirational and memorable events and we are proud of the impact made through our concerts and educational activities.

Your support helps to make all this possible, and in return we offer a range of benefits and discounts.  Please click on the Friends or Patrons link above for more info.
