Columbus Symphony Champions

Repeat your impact with a monthly gift and become a member of the Columbus Symphony Champions! 

As Columbus Symphony Champions, your recurring gift on a monthly, quarterly, or multi-year basis will provide a dependable and stable foundation for our future, allowing the Columbus Symphony to rise to new heights and fulfill our mission to inspire and build a strong community through music.


Why Recurring Gifts?

Recurring gifts and multi-year pledges create a steady and dependable stream of support that allows us to plan more effectively and is also a convenient way to increase your annual gift to the Columbus Symphony through an affordable payment option.

As we return to normal business operations with full orchestra performances the reality of reduced attendance in the concert hall poses a difficult and challenging scenario. While we are working diligently to maintain the financial health of the organization, it is critically important that we shore up financial risks to account for decreased ticket revenue during this time when we are accelerating our efforts to expand our reach in the community. Ticket sales account for less than one-third of our revenue, and we are looking to ensure a strong and long-term base is sustained for a robust financial future. 

The Columbus Symphony has embarked on a new era as a national exemplar of a vibrant and dynamic orchestra. With your help, we can plan and build a future illuminated with the joy and inspiration that only music can provide for generations to come.
