ABILENE PHILHARMONIC FOUNDATION

Founded in 1988 by Conductor Laureate, George Yeager, the Abilene Philharmonic Foundation manages an endowment that ensures the future financial well-being of Abilene’s professional orchestra. Gifts that build this endowment establish a source of predictable annual revenue, in perpetuity. They offer protection from budget constraints and help build a secure financial future.

The Abilene Philharmonic Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 and managed by a Board of Trustees that are dedicated to the following principles:

Gifts support the orchestra now and in future generations

Funds are invested conservatively and monitored for performance

The distribution of funds is geared to perpetual support

YOUR GIFT TO FUTURE GENERATIONS

An endowment is a permanent fund that provides annual support to the Abilene Philharmonic. Similar to a personal retirement account, this fund will be prudently and expertly invested. Each year the fund will provide an annual stipend to further support the goals and aims of the APO - creating a permanent, stream of financial support in perpetuity. Please consider joining this important initiative and support the power of live symphonic music for future generations.
