Foundation

The Cheyenne Symphony Foundation is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to providing grant support to the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra through its Permanent Endowment.

Through the generous gifts of visionary donors, the Endowment allows the Foundation to provide much-needed funding for the Orchestra’s community and education outreach programs. Only a portion of the Endowment earnings are distributed each year; the rest are reinvested for future growth.

Because of the support of many caring donors, the growth of the Foundation Endowment has enabled the Foundation to grant critically needed funding. In fact, the Cheyenne Symphony Foundation has granted over one million dollars to the orchestra!

Such wonderful support is made possible solely through the generous gifts from those who love the Symphony’s music. Please consider making a cash donation or planned-giving arrangements to the Foundation.

Gifts at any level are appreciated greatly. Whether in the form of cash, stocks or bonds, or through your will or living trust, your gift will help assure the continued viability of the Orchestra, and can help you realize significant tax savings.

Gifts of $1,000 or more will be formally recognized on the Foundation’s “Sound Investment” donor recognition wall display, located in the Cheyenne Civic Center.

The Foundation will be pleased to work with you to set up the transfer of any asset you choose to gift.

For more information, please call the CSO office at 307-778-8561.
