Resiliency Fund

The PSO is raising at least $500,000 in Resiliency Fund, early in the 2020-21 season to ensure that it has the ability to serve its community now and when it returns to stage. The funds raised will help the PSO overcome the loss of ticket income from lower subscription and ticket sales for the 2020-21 season. The PSO will need to raise at least $500,000 from donors for The Resiliency Fund, above Annual Fund giving, to make up the revenue lost due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Resiliency Fund will help the PSO navigate the COVID-19 crisis.

Without this support, the PSO cannot serve its community to its full ability during the crisis and when it returns to stage.


The Resiliency Fund ensures that the PSO will be stronger, more relevant, and have a deeper connection to its community when it returns to the stage. This fund invests in the musicians and staff who make world-class programs possible onstage and virtually, and it advances meaningful music programs that enrich the lives of 100,000 children and adults each season.

While the PSO has been offstage, we have realigned our programs to meet the needs of our community and musicians. Through digital engagement, we have provided music to patrons, income to musicians, and engaging programs for students.
