The Benefactors Council: Access and Advocacy

The Benefactors Council is a group of advocates for which your annual gift level gains you access to the operations and musicians of the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra.

Members of the Benefactors Council are offered a unique, behind-the-scenes view of how the Orchestra brings world-class music to the community and beyond through invitations to events and other unique opportunities. From “lunch and learn” sessions to networking, members of the Benefactors Council spend time with those who have a fascination for and love of the music and the institution. The rewards of membership are many, and the investment provides invaluable returns. Unlike the Orchestra’s Board of Directors, membership in Benefactors Council does not require a nomination process. The only requirement for membership is to support the Orchestra with a gift of $5,000 or more as an individual or $7,500 or more as an organization. As the Orchestra continues its journey to even greater musical heights and builds an even stronger community presence, the near future provides several in-depth events for the Benefactors Council.
