Individual Support

What does the Symphony Annual Fund support?

Gifts to the Symphony Annual Fund build annual operating support that is essential to the Charlotte Symphony's ability to fulfill its mission of providing music and education to our community.

Why is it important to support the Annual Fund?

As with most U.S. performing arts organizations, ticket sale revenue accounts for one-third of the Charlotte Symphony's annual operating budget, which means the remaining two-thirds must be generated through contributions. For every dollar the Symphony earns in ticket sales, we must raise an additional $2 through donations just to keep the music playing.
