Individual Giving, You Make the Music Possible!


You make the music possible.

Each year generous contributions from individuals enable the National Philharmonic to maintain its rich tradition of artistic excellence and community outreach. Providing financial support for a professional community arts organization can be as fulfilling as attending an outstanding performance.

The Annual Fund exists to bridge the gap between earned income and expenses. Under the best circumstances, ticket sales only cover 40% of the costs of concert production and the Philharmonic’s education programs. The National Philharmonic depends upon an ever-expanding community of donors who believe in our activities and help to support our programs.

As a thank you for your generosity, the National Philharmonic offers a unique set of benefits designed to complement your musical experience. For a full listing of the Philharmonic’s membership benefits, please click here.
