Endowment Giving

Giving to our endowment is the gift that truly keeps on giving. Your gift to the Endowment Fund is forever. It ensures that the Symphony will be able to enrich and transform lives for years to come. It helps guarantee that future generations of Rogue Valley citizens and visitors will be thrilled by performances of great symphonic music the same as you have been. It ensures that young people will continue to be mentored, taught, and exposed to classical music by RVS musicians. Endowment gifts are a minimum of $1000, all are acknowledged in concert programs, and those who donate become members of the esteemed Encore Society.

In-Kind Gifts

The Rogue Valley Symphony is thriving, and appreciates your help in continuing to do so. Major donors and sponsors are invited to attend our post-concert receptions, where they can meet with the music director, soloist(s), and members of the orchestra over wine and hors d’oeuvres. In-kind donations reduce the cost of our operations. From refreshments for our musicians at rehearsals to hotel rooms for our visiting artists, there are many ways you or your business can provide assistance.

Types of Products and Services Needed

  • Wine for post-concert receptions
  • Refreshments for rehearsals or post-concert receptions
  • Lodging for visiting artists throughout the season
  • Venues for special events and receptions throughout the season.

As well as being acknowledged during the time of use, in-kind donations are recognized on our website and in our concert programs. If you have ideas regarding the exchange of services or products or are in a position to provide any gifts in-kind, please send us an email or give us a call at (541) 708-6402. Thank you for considering an in-kind gift to the Rogue Valley Symphony.
