2018 Annual Fund Drive
Dear RSO members and friends,
Thank you for sharing in this annual event that affords us the opportunity to continue the tradition of
excellence. We can’t do it without you! The RSO hopes you will consider a year-end gift to help us deliver great
Why your gift Matters.
Ticket sales revenue, though robust over the past several seasons, cover less than 50% of the budget needed to
support a professional orchestra and you have come to expect excellence from your orchestra. You have come
to expect us to bring talented professional guest artists and feature the finest young artist at the May concert.
Thanks in good part to your support for over 5 decades, the Rochester Symphony Orchestra continues to meet
Music and taxes.
As the close of the tax year approaches, it becomes possible for those of you who wish to contribute to the
orchestra to do more, and incur less personal financial impact when you do so.
If you want to make a more notable tax-exempt gift, consider a Chair sponsorship for $1,000 or by generously
becoming a contributing concert sponsor for $5,000. Regardless of the amount, all donations are tax-deductible.
Please know that all contributions to the RSO are significant and appreciated.
The Christmas Concert is scheduled for December 7th at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. Please visit our
website at www.rochestersymphony.com for further concert information and to purchase tickets online. We
hope to see you in the audience soon.
We have enclosed a donor envelope for your convenience. Thank you in advance for your support.
Rochester Symphony Board President
