Annual Fund

Your tax-deductive gift to the Annual Fund brings the impact of music to our community. Help the PSO enrich lives through world-class music programs on-and-off the stage. Learn about our different Ways to Give, and the different Donor Levels and Benefits.


This year, your gift could have double the impact.

One donor is so excited by the PSO’s future they have pledged to match any amount, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. Any new or increased gift made to the Annual Fund has the power to do twice as much. Give to the Annual Fund or Crescendo Campaign today.

THE NEXT ERA BEGINS WITH YOUR INVESTMENT TODAY.

NEW and increased GIFTS WILL UNLOCK $100,000.
