Waco Symphony Donations and Sponsorships
Gifts to the Waco Symphony Association for general operating expenses assist
in keeping ticket prices affordable and also support our youth programs,
including the Waco Symphony Youth Orchestra.
These gifts confirm the Waco Symphony Association’s partnership with the
community beyond ticket purchases. Ticket income covers only a small
percentage of concert expenses, so we must rely upon donations and
sponsorships to make up the difference.
Your contributions are instrumental in the success and continued growth of
the Waco Symphony.
Donations and sponsorships of $500 or more are acknowledged on the “Partners in Music” pages of our concert programs.
