The Columbus Symphony is grateful for the generous support we receive from individuals, foundations, corporations, and volunteers. The CSO depends on contributed income for over 70 percent of its annual budget. Ticket revenue covers less than 30 percent of the orchestra’s production costs. This fiscal year we need to raise over $5 million in contributed income to balance our $9 million budget. Your support ensures the power of music is meaningful and relevant to all residents in our community.

Individual GivingAnnual Fund donations support our mission of building and inspiring a strong community through music.

Tribute & Memorial Gifts: Honor the memory of a loved one or celebrate a life milestone with a thoughtful gift to the Symphony. 

Corporate & Foundation Giving: Support from businesses, foundations, and public supporters make a difference in elevating the quality of life in our community through music.
