Donating Wine to the TSO Fine Wine Charity Auction

We are now accepting donations of fine wine for the 2024 TSO Fine Wine Auction.

Since its inception 33 years ago, the annual TSO Fine Wine Charity Auction fundraiser has raised more than $8 million with the generous support of donors and buyers. Funds raised support the world-class Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO), and provide funding and support to the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra and its tuition-free program, and the TSO’s music education programs that reach thousands of students each year. This annual fundraiser is a project of the Toronto Symphony Volunteer Committee.

As a donor you can do your part in our community by donating a bottle or selection of fine wines from your cellar to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra Fine Wine Charity Auction.

Donations of fine wine are accepted year-round. Wine for the 2024 auction must be received by July 1, 2024 for inclusion in the 2024 auction. To be eligible for a 2024 charitable income tax receipt, donations must be received by December 31, 2024.

Donations to the Auction are eligible for a charitable income tax receipt based on the appraised value of the wine in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency guidelines.
