Gifts to the Butler County Symphony Endowment Fund, in memory of or in honor of anyone, are critical to the Symphony’s future. The fund’s interest is a major source for our annual operating budget. Large gifts can be recognized by the permanent naming of orchestra chairs.

Endowed chairs are recognized in the concert programs on separate “Endowment Fund” page in perpetuity. Endowed positions are also noted on the orchestra roster page. Smaller gifts are recognized with the giver’s name (and honored person’s name) in one concert program.

The Butler County Symphony Association would like to thank those who have made contributions to this fund.
