Planned Giving

Thank you for considering a gift to the Dallas Symphony Foundation. Every gift—no matter the size—is appreciated. Contributions through wills and estates have a significant impact on building a strong, permanent endowment to secure a solid financial future for the Dallas Symphony. Consider endowing your annual support for the Orchestra in perpetuity with a gift of 20x your annual gift. The endowment currently recognizes nearly 100 named funds that support programs of special significance, such as the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Young Strings—or you can direct your gift to music education, name a favorite chair in the Orchestra or support vital artistic initiatives.
