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 performing arts organizations across the country, ticket sale revenue accounts for one-third of the CSO's annual operating budget, which means the remaining two-thirds, must be generated through contributions. In other words, for every $1 the CSO earns in ticket sales, we must raise an additional $2 through donations in order to keep the music playing and serving our community.
