Grande Ronde Symphony Endowment Fund

Enriching lives through the power of music!

The Grande Ronde Symphony Association (GRSA) is proud to announce the establishment of the “Grande Ronde Symphony Fund” within the Oregon Community Foundation’s – Endowment Partnership Program. Our new endowment was initially funded by a $50,000 donation from Dale and Ginny Mammen and a generous donation of $10,000 from Robert Delve, all long-time supporters of GRSO.

Join in the future of the Grande Ronde Symphony. Contribute to the ‘Andante Circle’ as a ‘Charter Member’ of the Grande Ronde Symphony Endowment Fund. Our goal is to match this generous donation by the Mammen’s within the 2024-2025 season, placing over $100,000 in the Grande Ronde Symphony Endowment Fund. As a ‘Charter Member’ your minimum donation of $10,000 can be paid all at once or over a three-year period in annual installments. Remember the symphony in your annual giving and estate planning.

“The Grande Ronde Symphony has been filling this Valley with music for over 75 years. As they celebrate this history, the Grande Ronde Symphony Association is also looking toward and planning for the future. We hope our gift to the Grande Ronde Symphony Fund Endowment will encourage others to give and ultimately grow the fund to sustain the symphony for generations to come.”
