About

All the funds raised each concert season through ticket sales, advertising, donations, and grants support the performances of the orchestra. The Northern Neck Orchestra Foundation has a different mission. Its purpose is to create and manage a permanent endowment fund to ensure the orchestra’s future.

Through your generosity, the Foundation will help create the financial security required by the orchestra over time to keep ticket prices affordable, enhance its musical capabilities, expand concert venues, and undertake outreach initiatives in the community.

Gifts to the Foundation and the funds generated by its endowment also will enable the orchestra to overcome downturns in annual giving and other unforeseen problems that might lie ahead.
