Ways to Give

Annual Fund

Many friends of the Colorado Symphony choose to make a one-time gift to the current season's Annual Fund and in doing so assist the orchestra's day-to-day operations. You may opt to donate online, over the phone, or by mailing a check to address below. Individuals may also choose to designate an in honorarium or in memoriam gift of a loved one, which is specially recognized in our concert program, Soundings



Be instrumental! When you contribute monthly payments straight from your checking or savings account, you are instrumental to the Colorado Symphony's continued success. Click below for details about monthly giving, the increasingly popular method of support.


Gifts of Stock

More individuals are finding gifts of appreciated stock to be an ideal way to support the music they love. By giving stock, you ensure the same impact as a regular Annual Fund contribution, while avoiding capital gains tax and gaining federal tax deductibility. Click below for our instructions on distributing stock.


Gifts from Your IRA

Some long-time members of our donor family have opted to donate straight from their IRA. To learn about Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) and the laws pertaining to them, visit this IRS webpage


Employer Matching Gifts

Companies offer matching grant opportunities when their employees make a contribution to a nonprofit. Matching gifts are an easy way to double the impact of your support. To see if your donation is eligible for matching by your employer, speak with your human resource department.
