In 2012, La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) Board members, staff and key donors saw the writing on the wall. Public resources were diminishing and budget cutbacks at the state level were affecting institutional support. An endowment of $1.5 million would provide enough annual income to bridge the financial gap.

Five years later, over $1.4 million has been raised. We are in the home stretch, but need your contributions to complete the campaign by June 30, 2017. You can help! Select the DONATE button to make an online gift today (type “endowment” in designation box). Or use the Pledge Form on the link below to make a gift by credit card or pledge a gift to be paid in the future or in installments (up to 5 years).

Endowment assures the sustainability of the LJS&C through an Endowment Spending Policy that only permits use of income produced by the funds. The principal is untouched, leaving it to grow and increase in value for years to come. The LJS&C maintains professionally-managed Endowment funds with two local foundations: The San Diego Foundation and Rancho Santa Fe Foundation.

To learn more about how to make a gift or to notify us of a pending gift (including stock transfers), please contact Executive Director Diane Salisbury at 858-822-3774 or dsalisbury@lajollasymphony.com Thank you for your support!
