Donations to the endowment of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra build the HSO’s endowment and provide long-term financial stability for the organization. Endowment earnings help finance the annual operating expenses of the HSO. Earnings on special endowment funds provide permanent support for specific purposes or projects.
The HSO welcomes donations to the endowment at any time.
Contributions to the Jean Sterling McRae Memorial Fund support the HSO’s annual Young Artists’ Competition.
Donors who contribute unused jewelry to the HSO are recognized as members of the Heirloom Society, and the proceeds from the sale of these donations are allocated to the endowment.
For further information about contributing to the endowment, the Jean Sterling McRae Memorial Fund and the Heirloom Society, please call the Development Office at 860.246.8742 ext. 321.
