Why Support the Orchestra?
"If we are to contribute to a livable society, we must strive to assure that poetry exists to temper technology; that music enlivens and enhances our educational growth; that dance and sculpture challenge our imaginations as much as any new scientific discovery."
W.A. Reynolds
A quality orchestra is a sign of a healthy community. The existence of Orchestra London assists businesses and learning institutions in attracting quality personnel with advanced degrees and top management skills.

Endowment Program

An endowment is a permanent fund bestowed upon an individual or institution, to be used for a specific purpose. Permanent endowments are income-earning funds that benefit the charity in perpetuity. Donors' original gifts are never spent — only the earnings are used by the charity.

The Orchestra London Endowment Program provides you with the opportunity to assist with the long term support of specific areas of our organization. This program includes, but is not limited to, the endowment of our Conductors, Concertmaster, Principal Chairs, education, and our capital fund. An endowment may be established through a gift of cash or securities or through a pledge payable over three to five years. Orchestra London is pleased to work with several industry leaders for the investment of our endowment funds, including the London Community Foundation, and The Ontario Arts Endowment Program.
