The Chippewa Valley Symphony Foundation is the philanthropic & investment arm of the Chippewa Valley Symphony Orchestra. Each year the Foundation provides a portion of its annual earnings to the Symphony to help defray the cost of its operations.
Our foundation was created in 1994 with an initial endowment of $20,000. When we began this campaign, Foundation assets were $375,000. Today, Foundation assets exceed $600,000 thanks to wise investments and generous donations from people like you. Our Foundation annually contributes from its earnings approximately 4% of its corpus to the Symphony for its operations. Funds contributed are used by the Symphony for the following:
- Printing Costs (Brochures and Programs)
- Guest Artists
- Musician Stipends
- Area Schools Outreach Program
- Administrative Costs
Reaching our campaign goal will enable the Foundation to increase its annual gift to approximately $40,000. This will allow the Symphony to continue to expand its efforts to bring Music You Love By People You Know to a whole new generation of supporters.
