“We’ve been attending concerts and watching the Symphony grow for over 50 years, and are grateful to have such a wonderful orchestra in our beautiful state. At a time when government support is uncertain, it is particularly important that community members donate to our orchestra. Please, join us in making the Oregon Symphony part of your legacy for future generations.”
– Scott and Margaret Arighi, Encore Society members

Proceeds from the Oregon Symphony’s endowment, as managed by the Oregon Community Foundation, provide a reliable source of funds every year for the Symphony’s operating budget. The principal is invested to generate annual interest income in perpetuity. It allows the Symphony flexibility to meet changing needs, ensures effective planning, and provides essential funds for all that we do, including our education and outreach programs.
