OSO Matching Campaign
For over 60 years, the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra (OSO) has been shaping and contributing to the arts & culture community in the Okanagan. Although they have a rich history, the past two years have been a struggle for the OSO. Like most arts organizations, the OSO was forced to cancel and postpone all live performances, events, and programs because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now that the OSO has come through the COVID-19 maelstrom – you are whole-heartedly invited back to their live performances. We’re also asking for your help to protect the long-term future of the OSO by contributing to their endowment matching campaign – which triples your gift!
For every $1.00 you invest in the OSO through your community foundation May 13 – June 30, 2022, your investment will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 by a generous OSO donor. Then, later in the year, the OSO will apply for a Canadian Heritage matching grant to triple these funds to $150,000.
Your contribution to this campaign will help guarantee that the OSO can continue to be an employer of talented professional local musicians, teach music, and mentor youth throughout the Okanagan and across the province.
The OSO’s endowment matching campaign will help secure a source of future income to ensure they can continue to share the power of live orchestral music long into the future. Donors to this campaign will contribute to an endowment fund – an invested sum of money that will grow over time and provide reliable future income for the OSO.
We encourage you to donate now to benefit the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra forever. Call or email us to find out more about leaving a planned gift (future gift from a will, RRSP/RRIF/TFSA or insurance policy) or gifts of appreciated stock or real estate. The Community Foundation handles investment management and administrative responsibilities for the endowment so the OSO’s staff can concentrate on generating funding for their current needs.
