Support Your Omaha Symphony

Support Your Omaha Symphony and Become an Annual Fund Donor Today!

For more than a century, the Omaha Symphony has been a cornerstone of Omaha’s thriving arts and culture scene. Our supporters know how important it is to keep the music playing, and it is thanks to their support that we can continue our mission to bring music to our city and beyond!

The Omaha Symphony continues to explore new ways to innovate and bring live orchestral music to every member of the community in the concert hall and beyond with an annual reach of 225,000 audience members. We are thrilled to be a fixture at the Gene Leahy Mall — we welcomed more than 23,000 to two free concerts downtown in 2023! Plus, we continue to expand our digital initiatives through our television broadcasts and our Virtual Classroom to break down the barriers and expand our reach.

Your gift to the annual fund will make an immediate impact on our ability to continue to provide world-class orchestral music, serve a broader segment of our community, and remain a powerful resource for students and teachers for another 100 years. Donors also receive exciting benefits — like behind-the-scenes updates, advance notice and purchase opportunities to special concerts, invites to special donor receptions and sneak peek rehearsals, and more! A full list of benefits with corresponding donation levels can be found below.

Does your employer match your charitable donations? If so, talk to your employer and make your donation go twice as far!

IRA-qualified charitable distributions:

If you are age 70 ½ or older, you can make a qualified charitable distribution directly from your IRA to the Omaha Symphony. Please reach out to your financial advisor to initiate the process.

Stock or mutual fund contributions:

Giving appreciated stock or mutual fund shares (held for more than a year) may provide greater contribution and tax savings than giving cash. Please reach out to your financial advisor to initiate the process.
