explore our designated funds
1. General Fund
Operating/Unrestricted funding is the “today” of the orchestra. Whether a Sponsorship or a pure Donation, operating funding is the heartbeat of the Orchestra.
2. Endowment Fund
The “tomorrow” of the orchestra. General Endowment Unallocated is a permanent fund set up by the charity to hold gifts in perpetuity. The capital is retained and only the income is used for the current work of the charity. This is the natural receptacle for memorial gifts, and often undesignated bequests are automatically directed to this fund. Gifts of any size can be placed in this fund.
3. jackson family virtuoso fund
Bring the “WOW” factor. Named after its founding donors, the Jackson Family Virtuoso Fund enables the Orchestra to engage and feature soloists of the highest calibre.
4. donate tickets
Donate concert tickets to Veterans, the Elderly, the Disabled, and families who are less fortunate. We partner with community organizations to identify need, and your donated tickets are put to the best use!
5. Music Library
Very important for programming. The Music Director is limited in music choices by the budget available for purchasing or renting music. Each musician needs a part, and the Conductor needs a score. Complex works can cost $500-$1000 each for parts and scores.
6. classroom Education
While some school boards have a budget for outside performers, many rural schools simply don't have the student numbers or music program funding to afford these kinds of opportunities for students. Your support enables the Orchestra to take small groups of professional players right into the classroom!
7. equipment & instruments
This fund provides for purchase, maintenance, and replacement of specialized equipment. Speciality instruments (percussion instruments, rare wind instruments) are owned by the Orchestra, not the individual players.
