Endow Hartford 21

Because Donors Believe in the Future of Greater Hartford

The HSO is one of just 11 organizations selected to participate in Phase 3 of Endow Hartford 21, the first community-wide matching gift endowment campaign of its kind in our region. Now through December 31, 2024, any gift to the HSO—above and beyond Annual Fund support—between $250 to $10,000 made through Endow Hartford 21 via the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving will be matched dollar-for-dollar, meaning your support can help boost our endowment more than ever. 

We urge you to join us in seizing this extraordinary opportunity. To participate, simply visit EndowHartford21.com for instructions or contact HSO Development Director Eric Hutchinson for information. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Hartford Symphony Orchestra! 

Build Strength and Stability

Organizations needs endowments to secure their future.  An endowment helps organizations sustain their mission during periods of revenue fluctuations and enables them to adapt over time.

Participation by the Hartford Symphony Orchestra

Since our involvement in Endow Hartford 21 began in June 2021, we have demonstrated exceptional success. Out of 51 organizations initially chosen, HSO was among the few to maximize its share of available matching funds, raising over $116,000 in endowment funds. This achievement has bolstered our total endowment to over $10 million, providing essential long-term support for our mission. 

Thanks to the Zachs Family Foundation and other generous matching donors, the HSO was able to increase its endowment, a critical component of long-term stability. We are grateful for their vision for the City of Hartford and is assistance in navigating these challenging times and building for the future.  

Please continue to support the community and the HSO! 

The community has responded enthusiastically to the EndowHartford 21. We are so grateful to our loyal supporters, who recognize that gifts to our endowment, in addition to gifts made to our Annual Fund, are the key to HSO’s financial stability.
