You make our success possible. Generous contributions from our patrons allow us to bring you lively, colorful, interesting music from the Americas. PASO has a long tradition in Washington of artistic excellence and community collaboration thanks to the support we’ve received over the years from our patrons, like you. Ticket sales only cover a small part of the costs of concert production and PASO’s outreach activities. PASO needs your donations to help support our programs.
If you regularly attend our concerts and our DC Annual Tango Festival, you believe in PASO. Show PASO your loyalty and commitment with a donation. PASO has minimal overhead costs and more than 90 percent of our budget goes to artistic expenses, not administration. Your donation truly goes a long way. For more information about individual giving, please contact PASO at 240-242-8032 or click on the donate button.
Your company's matching contribution program can provide valuable support for PASO. You can double or even triple the amount of your gift to PASO if you are employed by a company, one of their divisions, subsidiaries, or affiliates, that matches charitable contributions to cultural and arts organizations. Simply pick up a Matching Gift Form from your human resources or community relations department (available on many company websites) and complete your part of the form. Send it to PASO, 1400 Main Drive NW, Washington, DC 20012
You may also help PASO by leaving a lasting legacy that secures PASO’s future for years to come. When you make your estate plans, think of PASO.
