ECCO is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization under the name “East County Community Orchestra.”  Our federal tax ID number is 93-1173975.  All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible.  We look forward to seeing you at our next concert!

ECCO Website
A PayPal link is located in the upper right of each of our pages for your use in online donations.  You can use your PayPal account, or a debit/credit card without setting up a PayPal account.  Either way, you can choose to make one time or ongoing donations.

Cash or Checks
You may also donate cash or checks at concerts using the donation containers provided, or mail checks or money orders for us to:

East County Community Orchestra
PO BOX 16134
PORTLAND OR 97292-0134

Amazon Smile
Do you buy from Amazon?  Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to ECCO each quarter.  For initial setup of an account, go to and follow the process there.  For your orders to count towards your donation-eligible purchases, you MUST use to place them, not a mobile app. The first time you use your new account, you may need to choose ECCO as your designated charity, but after that it will be saved in your profile, and shows in the top portion of your screen.



The group’s goals, taken from its Bylaws:

Goal #1 – The East County Community Orchestra was founded to give adult professional and amateur musicians an opportunity to continue playing in an ensemble setting. ECCO also invites talented younger musicians to join, giving them an opportunity to gain performance experience with seasoned professionals;

Goal #2 – This goal is to bring spirited orchestral performances of classical and contemporary music to Greater Portland area audiences.  ECCO offers three to five concerts for the performance season.  Three are formal concerts offered to the public.  Invitations for ECCO performances will be considered on an individual basis.  ECCO will advertise these events primarily through digital media.
