At the Grand Rapids Symphony, every aspect of our work – from the concert hall to the classroom – aims to make us integral and indispensable in West Michigan. And every concert and initiative is supported by generous individuals, corporations, and foundations, who share our belief that music has the power to educate, entertain, and enrich our community and our lives.

Your gift to the Symphony’s Annual Fund supports programs not covered by ticket sales. Annual Fund contributions ensure that we can continue to offer the high-quality performances you expect, attract and retain professional musicians, and provide a Gateway to Music – music education and access programming that reaches more than 86,000 individuals across 11 West Michigan counties annually.



There are many ways to support your Grand Rapids Symphony. Symphony Sustainers make monthly contributions to the Grand Rapids Symphony Annual Fund. Gifts automatically repeat monthly, allowing you to make convenient regular payments that add up to significant support over the course of the year, and helping the Symphony to plan more effectively for the season ahead – a win-win! Symphony Sustainers also reduce overhead costs by cutting down on expenses like paper, printing and postage.

Of course, you’re also welcome to support the Symphony with a single annual gift. Using this form you’ll be able to make a secure donation online, and also make gifts in honor or in memory of others. If you’d rather mail a check to our offices, you can send it to:
