Each generation of music lovers has the privilege, pleasure and responsibility to give the most precious gift of symphonic music to those who come after us. The San Bernardino Symphony has been fortunate to have devoted patrons who, through their generosity, have kept the music alive for over 90 years.
Recently several long-time patrons and supporters have left or promised legacy bequests, thereby forming the core of our current endowment. A larger endowment will enable to the San Bernardino Symphony to continue to thrive and to attain ever greater heights of artistic excellence.
Please consider making an enduring gift of a life-time with a contribution to the San Bernardino Symphony’s Endowment and Planned Gift Campaign. Current gifts can be pledged naming the Symphony an insurance beneficiary, based on the sale of real estate, or in your will or trust. The Symphony maintains relationships with a number of excellent local attorneys who can assist you if requested.
All contributions to the San Bernardino Symphony’s Endowment and Planned Gift Program will be enrolled in the Symphony’s “Continuo Society”and will be recognized in concert program books. Become a Member of the Continuo Society now.
