Support Your Symphony Orchestra

The Topeka Symphony depends on the generous support from a variety of sources in the community. Ticket sales alone do not fully fund the activities of the Topeka Symphony. Therefore, we must seek continued support from individuals, local businesses and corporations. We are indebted to our patrons and supporters for their generosity. Without your support the educational opportunities for our young musicians participating in youth ensembles would not be possible. The performances of the Topeka Symphony Orchestra are also dependent on this additional support.

The Topeka Symphony is a Topeka treasure for all of Northeast Kansas and worthy of your support. Please review the information below about the Topeka Symphony Annual Fund and Topeka Symphony Endowment Fund. Email or call (785) 232-2032 with your questions.

Topeka Symphony Endowment Fund

Make a gift to the TOPEKA SYMPHONY ENDOWMENT to establish a chair in your name or to honor a loved one.
