Endowment

In addition to income from the Annual Fund, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra depends on income from a robust Endowment fund to meet its yearly budget, as well as to provide a secure financial baseline for its future growth. While ticket sales, performance fees, government grants and philanthropic support provide essential funding, internationally renowned orchestras turn to earnings from their endowment to balance their budgets every year.

The single most important means to sustaining the Pittsburgh Symphony's world-class artistic excellence is to significantly increase the size of its endowment. This objective is among the institution's highest priorities. A larger endowment will provide the Pittsburgh Symphony with sufficient funds to attract internationally acclaimed artistic leadership on the podium, engage world famous guest artists on the stage; retain nationally recognized principals, sustain a full complement of full-time musicians at competitive compensation, perform in the world's finest concert halls; broadcast performances on national radio and continue to produce recordings for global distribution.

Donors may make gifts to the Endowment through outright cash or securities or Planned Giving vehicles such as bequests, trusts, life insurance or other deferred instruments. The Symphony's Legacy Programs (Steinberg Society and Sid Kaplan Tribute Program) and Endowment Naming Opportunities (for guest artists, musician's chairs, concert series, educational programs or designated spaces) also offer donors a variety of opportunities to support the growth of the Endowment fund.

For more information about supporting the Pittsburgh Symphony Endowment or endowed naming opportunities, please contact Director of Leadership and Planned Gifts Jan Fleisher at (412)392-3320.
