Encore - The Legacy
Society of the Long Beach

Long Beach Symphony invites you to join ENCORE! today through a planned gift and make an enduring impact on the future of the arts in the Long Beach community.

By planning a legacy gift to the Foundation for the Long Beach Symphony, you ensure the Symphony’s ability to plan the future of orchestral music and education programs for the city and surrounding region. In celebration of our upcoming 90th season of providing orchestral music to the region, we are encouraging our patrons to think about our next 90 years. How does the Symphony grow to become what our children and their children need and want?

You can help the Symphony remain essential to the community with a legacy gift, which was created as an endowment to ensure the Symphony’s artistic quality and continued impact. Gifts to the Foundation for the Long Beach Symphony remain invested in perpetuity and the income provides crucial annual support to the Symphony.

Our vision is to inspire and unite ALL people through the transformative power of music. Aspirational and compelling, it guides all that we do but we need your support to ensure the sustainability and the growth of this major cultural organization founded in 1934. Having served nearly one million children through our award-winning education initiatives, please review the gift options below to determine which best fits your philanthropic objectives. Your contribution will ensure that the Long Beach Symphony will impact future generations.

On behalf of our exceptional musicians and this wonderfully diverse community we serve, we invite you to join us in turning our vision into a reality.
