Established in 1976, the Symphony Foundation provides perpetual financial support for the orchestra’s concerts as well as education and access programs. Donations are invested for long-term appreciation, with a modest percent of earnings directed annually to operating expenses.

Legacy of Leadership Circle members listed below have included the orchestra in their estate plan or contributed $1,000 or more to the Foundation for which we are grateful. Please join the Legacy of Leadership Circle through a planned gift or cash donation to begin receiving member recognition. Notify the Development department of your support at development@grsymphony.org, or call at 616.454.9451, ext 122, or visit www.grsymphony.org/planned-giving. Gifts to the Symphony Foundation may take many forms: a cash donation, securities or property; a gift through your will or trust; or life insurance designation. 

Listings are in alphabetical order.
