Individual Giving

The North Carolina Symphony is able to carry out our dual mission of music education and statewide service because of the support shown by the people of our state. While the Symphony fills concert halls, ticket sales cover only a portion of the cost to stage our performances and provide music education opportunities. More than one-third of our costs are funded by individuals like you.

Your support plays a direct role in bringing orchestral music to more than 250,000 people each year, from Raleigh to Wilmington and Murphy to Manteo—including more than 150,000 children. Plus, your gift to the Symphony will count towards the State Challenge Grant goal, enhancing your generosity even further!

Donor Advised Funds

The Symphony does accept Donor Advised Fund (DAF) contributions; however, donating through a DAF may limit the donor benefits that you can receive. Because a maximum tax deduction is received when funds are contributed to a DAF, a donor cannot legally receive any benefits with a substantial fair market value for a gift made from a DAF. The North Carolina Symphony will provide any relevant benefits in your appropriate giving circle that have insubstantial or no fair market value. If you have a DAF with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon, you can request a distribution directly to the North Carolina Symphony Society using the DAF Direct website.

Enjoy Exclusive Benefits

Becoming a donor has many great perks—it’s our way of saying thank you! Make a gift at one of our Giving Circle Levels and receive benefits such as access to open rehearsals, VIP parking, admittance to donor suites at concerts, and invitations to exclusive events.



Maximize Your Gift

It may be possible to double the impact of your gift! Many companies will match contributions from current and retired employees; some even match the gifts of employees’ spouses.
