Ways to Support

The Central Oregon Symphony Association education programs and chamber music events would not be possible without the generous support of individuals, businesses, organizations, and foundations. There are many ways to support your local symphony orchestra. Each opportunity offers its own experiences and rewards.

Annual Individual Donations from community members who love the arts and show their support through their gifts to the Symphony. We proudly display their names in our concert series programs.

Endowment Contributions through COCC Foundation are set aside and invested, with a portion of the income used to support the Symphony’s operations each year.

Matching Gifts double your gifts! Contact your employer to find out if your company matches gifts.

Planned Giving provides support through a bequest, charitable gift annuity, or trust arrangement. Remembering the Symphony through a bequest in your will or with a trust or annuity will assure an unparalleled musical experience for generations to come.

Sponsorships give local businesses exposure to audiences of music lovers. There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities within the Central Oregon Symphony concert season and special events.

Tribute Gift is a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone like a birthday, anniversary, or recognize accomplishments like graduations. It can also honor the memory of a dear friend or relative. Tribute gifts are listed in our programs.

Volunteer Opportunities abound with our Symphony including ushering at concerts, helping with our Beat Beethoven 5K run/walk, and serving on a COSA board committee.
