Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account that you can open through a financial institution or community foundation. A DAF might be a great way to combine the most favorable tax benefits for you and your philanthropic support of our mission. To make a gift through your DAF, contact your fund administrator.

Support the Endowment

A gift to the Symphony’s Endowment Fund ensures the organization’s financial success in the future by providing a steady flow of income from investments. Donations to the Endowment are permanently restricted while the income generated may be used at the Board’s discretion to fund the Symphony’s annual operating costs. Encore Society: Endowment gifts of $5,000 or more entitle the donor to a lifetime membership in the Encore Society. Members of the Encore Society are recognized in the program book and are invited to exclusive annual function. Named Endowments: The Symphony currently has several naming opportunities available for donors wishing to endow an orchestra chair or fund for a fixed term or in perpetuity..
