FOS Membership Fundraising


In 2017-2018, Friends membership donated $12,000 to sponsor the FCSO performance of the Masterworks #4 at Lincoln Center, $7,700 to support the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Ravel’s “Mother Goose Suite” as Grand Finale of the 2018 Musical Zoo, and $3,000 to supplement the Friend’s International Music Exchange Fund. Further donations included $250 in support of Composer Talks and $250 for FCSO rehearsal refreshments. Our annual donations thus totaled $20,200 beyond those from the FOS Endowment fund.

Friends/Guild have generated over $1 million of financial support to the Symphony since the first fundraising event in 1964. We are the largest single donor to the Symphony!

The Friends have agreed to again sponsor a Masterworks Performance in 2018-2019, which will be the Masterworks Concert #4, on March 2, 2019. The Friends will provide volunteer support to smaller fundraisers developed by FOS and the FCSA as they arise and to other Symphony activities.

We will keep you posted on fundraising and other Friends events throughout the year through our website, newsletters and special invitations. See you there!
