Annual Fund

Peoria Symphony ranks high among the local organizations that contribute to the unique quality of life Central Illinois residents enjoy. This quality of life is what will continue to attract and retain the professionals that drive our current and future economy. In order for PSO to continue to thrive, we must each do our part to provide the required financial support.

-Rennie Atterbury III, Vice President, Peoria Symphony Foundation


Your support keeps the PSO playing in Peoria! ­

PSO Playing in Peoria

Inspiring Minds. Enhancing Lives.

Making Music that Matters.

That’s what your gift does for our community. We are so grateful!

The Annual Fund is a critical source of operating support for your Peoria Symphony Orchestra. Ticket sales cover only 30% of operating expenses (this is an industry average; not unique to us). You may make your gift in a single payment each year or establish a monthly recurring gift through our Da Capo program. You can even pledge your support and pay later in the season.

Gifts at all levels through our Musicians Club are welcome and needed. Conductor’s Circle is our leadership giving level for donors who give at least $1,000. Forté (under 40) is a new group designed to create a community to nurture the next generation of Symphony advocates. However you choose to give, we are grateful for your support!

What do Annual Fund donors support? In short, everything.

It may not sound as exciting as a Rachmaninoff piano concerto, but let’s face it, there are costs to every business, and your Peoria Symphony Orchestra is not immune to that. We have payroll to meet, rent and insurance bills to pay… without your Annual Fund support, the show cannot go on. We thank you!

Your investment in the Peoria Symphony Orchestra yields great returns:

  • High quality artistic performances each season.
  • A cultural dynamic, helping to attract and retain the talent that drives our regional economy.
  • A valuable resource to enrich arts curricula for area youth.

Since 1897, your Peoria Symphony Orchestra has been a vibrant and integral part of central Illinois’ cultural and arts landscape. Please make your annual fund gift annually to keep your Peoria Symphony Orchestra playing in Peoria!
