Sinfonieorchester Basel Foundation
The Sinfonieorchester Basel is supported by a foundation which was established in 1988. Its founders were the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft, Theater Basel and the Allgemeine Musikgesellschaft (General Music Society) in Basel. The foundation deed defines its purpose as the organization, funding and management of a permanent orchestra.
The Sinfonieorchester Basel is funded by public subsidies from the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft, revenue from its own events, guest appearances, hiring for events, and contributions from third parties (support grants, sponsors, benefactors etc.).
