Our Greatest Opportunity Is You

The Colorado Symphony is creating a sustainable future for symphonic music in Colorado

Nick Dobreff 0 94

For nearly 100 years, the Colorado Symphony has been an iconic paragon within Colorado’s performing arts community. As the only resident, full-time, professional orchestra in the state, it has served as a vital linchpin of the cultural performing arts infrastructure of Colorado. However, with operating costs increasing each year, it’s imperative that the organization builds a more substantial endowment that will serve as a reliable source of income year after year. In 2015, the Colorado Symphony received a challenge grant commitment of $25 million from the Avenir Foundation, which agreed to match all donations dollar-for-dollar made by June 30, 2020 up to the $25 million threshold. Several additional opportunities remain, and we need your help.
