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.
