Individual Giving

Ticket revenue covers less than half of The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra's production costs, with generous gifts from individuals and corporations providing much of the rest.

  • Annual gift – to cover costs of operations
  • Acknowledgment – to mark a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, graduation, new baby)
  • Honorarium – to honor a special person
  • Thank you – to show appreciation
  • Memorial – to make a gift in memory of a dear, departed one

Endowment Giving

Like any vigorous organization, The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra's mission is to continue to grow—in the strength and variety of its programming, in the quantity of its outreach efforts and in the satisfaction it brings to its audiences. To do so requires an endowment that keeps pace with this growth. Unlike annual gifts, which are expended for short-term needs, gifts for the endowment are invested, and the principal is held in perpetuity. The Symphony will spend income from the Endowment Fund to support its activities.

There are many endowment opportunities, one of which is establishing a named chair; this endowed chair serves to enrich the orchestra by attracting exceptional musicians. Generosity to the Symphony's endowment campaign is recognized in several ways, but the greatest benefit for a benefactor is the knowledge that his or her gift will assure the continuing excellence of one of America's best symphony orchestras, now and into the future.

All privileges are conveyed on an annual basis and are renewable on the anniversary of the gift.

Ways to Give

Friends of The Williamsburg Symphony are invited to make gifts or commitments to the endowment campaign. Gifts may be made in cash, appreciated securities, or other property, such as real estate or life insurance. Generous payment periods may be arranged. A variety of planned giving vehicles, which offer significant tax savings and yield generous incomes to the donors or beneficiaries, are also available. Usually funded by gifts of long-term appreciated property, these include the pooled income fund and the charitable remainder trust. All gifts to The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. For more information, Contact Us.
