The Symphony Endowment

Composing the Future-The Virtuoso Society

Leave a legacy of beautiful music... The Virtuoso Society recognizes those who contribute to the Symphony endowment, either with outright gifts of cash or by remembering the Symphony in their estate plans. Your endowment pledge ensures the Symphony's ability to provide great music and music education for both children and adults in San Luis Obispo County. When you give, you join a select group of patrons who have designated the Symphony in their estate, or plan a substantial endowment donation in their lifetime. Either way, if you contribute, we want to honor and celebrate your foresight now!

Within The Virtuoso Society, certain funds have been established with a specific purpose in mind. Individuals may designate their gifts to these Special Funds or simply make their gift to the Virtuoso Society as a whole. These funds are as follows:
