Endowment giving is a way to provide long-term support and stability for The Florida Orchestra. Gifts to Endowment are invested to provide the orchestra with a continuous source of income, which can be used to promote programs important to our mission.
Donors have the option of making gifts to The Florida Orchestra’s Endowment Fund or to The Community Foundation of Tampa Bay. We also offer the option of endowing Musicians’ Chairs and Office Space at our headquarters in St. Petersburg College’s Downtown Center.
For more information on making a gift to the orchestra’s Endowment, please contact our development department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 727.362.5421. For information on our Music for Life Campaign, click here.
