Creating spaces for connection that are filled with music can only happen with major support through season and concert sponsorships. Ticket sales account for roughly 23% of our overall budget. The remaining 77% to cover musician costs, administrative overhead, music rental, and programs to develop new audiences come from donors like you.

Our musicians are the backbone of what makes our community gathering spaces so uniquely Redlands. The extraordinary talent that comes to our community only makes us more culturally rich and diverse.
Musician and Guest Artist Sponsorships are applicable to one season and are renewable. For a more sustaining and permanent level of support, consider endowing a musician's chair.

As the world continues to develop and the concept of extraordinary continues to be redefined, the Redlands Symphony seeks to grow with our changing community. Ensure that Redlands and our surrounding neighbors have access to these music filled spaces for community gathering for many years to come by contributing to the Redlands Symphony Endowment.
Join our endowment in one of two ways:
Gifts of $25,000 or more can be invested in the Redlands Symphony Endowment to support the general operations of the Symphony. The Symphony's annual draw on the Endowment helps offset administrative support including staff salaries, office rent, and other necessities to run the day-to-day operations of the Symphony.
Musician Chair Endowment
Gifts of $100,000 or more can be invested in the Redlands Symphony Endowment and restricted to musician support through named endowments. By endowing a musician's position, you can ensure the orchestra has, maintains, and grows the funds to support the salary of that musician in perpetuity. Donors who endow a musician's position get exclusive naming rights.
Currently endowed musician chairs:
The David and Robin Maupin Endowed Principal Viola Chair
The Nies Family Endowed Principal Oboe Chair
All endowment gifts may be pledged over a period not to exceed three (3) years. For more information on giving to the Redlands Symphony Endowment and/or including the Redlands Symphony in your estate planning, contact Executive Director Kevin Eberle-Noel by email or phone.
