Legacy Donors

The Olympia Symphony has flourished in our state capitol for 66 years. The power of quality classical music has enlightened and enriched our community in countless ways.

You have the power to help us set the stage for the future of classical music in our region by including a charitable gift within your overall estate and financial plans. Legacy Donors experience the satisfaction of knowing through their gift, they leave a legacy providing local, classical music for future generations.

We would like to recognize Legacy Donors who have given gifts totaling $10,000 or more to our Legacy Fund, or have provided for such a gift in their will as a future bequest.

The Olympia symphony is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We rely on the faithful financial support of donors, sponsors, and funders to operate. Thank you for your ongoing contributions and support.
