The cost of providing the highest quality musical mastery to our audiences is one of the largest expenses of the orchestra. By contributing to the Artist Fund, you are helping offset the costs of bringing soloists and guest artists to our stage, while also supporting the participation of our musicians in our education and outreach programs.
Whether to commemorate an occasion, acknowledge an accomplishment, make a charitable donation in someone’s name in lieu of a present, or memorialize a loved one, Honor and/or Memorial gifts are an ideal way to support the orchestra while remembering someone special. When you designate an honor or memorial to someone, we will send them or their family a notification of your thoughtfulness.
Established in 2003 to honor the founding Music Director of the Atlantic Classical Orchestra, the Andrew McMullan Founder’s Society is an endowment designated to provide funding for education and special projects of the ACO into the future. Those donors who contribute $10,000 or more to this fund receive membership in the Society and considerable thanks from the many children and adults who benefit from our programs.
When you make a gift to the ACO Endowment, you are providing the foundation for the future of the orchestra. Earnings from the endowment are designated for the highest and greatest needs of the orchestra as determined by the Board of Directors. We welcome the establishment of your own named endowment, beginning at $250,000, through which you may designate its purpose to reflect your charitable interests.
