Gifts of stocks and securities are an easy way to give to the New West Symphony.

We will give you and your broker all the information you need to electronically transfer shares to support the Symphony.

Stock gifts are valued based on the date of transfer to the Symphony's account. Donors receive credit for the full value of the stock at the time of transfer. Be sure to notify us before you make your transfer so we may recognize your donation. Stock transfer donations do not have donor information noted on the transaction.

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double the impact of your gift with your corporation’s matching gift program.

Please check with your employer’s human resources office to see if you are eligible for a matching gift. Don’t forget to thank your employer for sharing in your philanthropic interests!

Planned Giving

The New West Symphony Campaign for a New Era is the Symphony’s new initiative to raise $6 million during the next three years. You can leave an enduring legacy by naming the Symphony as a beneficiary of your bequest or other deferred gifts including charitable trusts, retirement accounts, charitable gift annuities, real estate and life insurance.

When you advise the Office of Development about your intentions, you will be recognized as a member of the Legacy Society. Please consult with your financial advisor to determine the best way for you to make a planned gift to the New West Symphony.


New West Symphony’s endowment funds provide an ongoing revenue stream to support New West Symphony’s work.  The interest earned on the principal gift ensure the financial future of the organization.

Endowment contributions may be made during your lifetime or as a planned gift for the future.  Contributions to the endowment funds may be made by gifts of cash, stocks, securities, real property, bequests and charitable gift annuities.

Endowments are accepted to support general operations, fund musician’s chairs, special concerts and guest artists.
