Your Generous Support Makes a Difference

When you donate to the York Symphony Orchestra, you’re keeping the wonder and joy of live symphonic music alive and thriving in York. We offer several opportunities for you to support YSO’s ongoing education and outreach activities, including one-time cash donations, corporate sponsorships, and endowments. No matter how you choose to give, know that your generosity is helping further YSO’s mission to bring live orchestral music and music education to the people of our region.


The York Symphony Orchestra and York Symphony Chorus thank all of our sponsors and partners throughout south-central Pennsylvania who help make it possible to bring live symphonic music and educational programs to our community.

Chair Naming Endowments

The YSO applauds the donors who have supported our legacy with an endowment. As this long-term initiative grows in popularity, eleven of the donor-named chairs are fully endowed and three are the result of three-year pledges, with right of first refusal for renewals.

Your generous contribution will help the YSO continue its legacy of providing great performances and educational opportunities for both students and adults.

Other Ways to Give

Endowments & Chair Naming

Recognizing and honoring major artistic positions within the York Symphony Orchestra is the hallmark of this elite level of leadership giving. More than one half of “Principal Chairs” and key “Artistic Professional Positions” bear the name of dedicated donors to the YSO.

Legacy Giving

The Encore Society is made up of individuals who have advised us that they have included the York Symphony Orchestra or Chorus in their wills or other planned giving legal instruments. 

Corporate Sponsorships

The York Symphony is happy to provide an opportunity for you or your company to sponsor all or part of a concert. Sponsorship is a way to let the community know your commitment to the arts and, especially the York Symphony Orchestra.
