$10,000 Goal

Colorado Gives Day (December 5) is quickly approaching! It is a time when we come together as a community and support nonprofit organizations. 

Early giving begins November 1, and every gift between November 1 and midnight on December 5 accelerates the financial goal of the Colorado Symphony Guild to make a larger contribution live symphonic music.

Every dollar donated to the Guild goes to support the Colorado Symphony which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Our Guild has been part of the Annual Fund Donor list to the Colorado Symphony every year since 1935!  We are the only organization or individual listed as a Platinum Chairman's Society donor of giving more than $50,000!  Our goal this year is to donate $100,000 to the Colorado Symphony in honor of its 100 year anniversary. 

Help us maintain our level of generosity by contributing to Colorado Gives for the Colorado Symphony Guild!  We appreciate your help in this important effort!


Dear Members of the Colorado Symphony Guild,

It is with immense gratitude that I write to you on behalf of the entire Colorado Symphony Association. The Guild’s steadfast support and unwavering commitment to our mission have been nothing short of extraordinary, and I am thrilled to express our deepest appreciation for the contributions you made during the 2022/23 season.

The generosity of the Guild, exemplified by the remarkable donation of over $65,000 and over 4,100 volunteer hours, has had a profound impact on our ability to enrich lives through the power of music. Your dedication to the arts and tireless efforts have enabled us to continue creating exceptional musical experiences and fostering a vibrant cultural landscape within our community. Every note played, every performance given, and every artistic endeavor embarked upon is made possible by partners like you who recognize the significance of the arts in our society.

As we reflect on the successes of the past season, we also look ahead with anticipation and excitement. I am thrilled to share that we are poised to celebrate our Centennial during the upcoming 2023/24 Season. This remarkable milestone marks a century of musical excellence, innovation, and shared moments that have enriched the lives of countless individuals. We couldn't imagine embarking on this historic journey without you.

On behalf of our musicians, staff, and board members, thank you again for your remarkable support. The Colorado Symphony is truly fortunate to have a partner like the Guild, and we look forward to the incredible journey that lies ahead.

With gratitude,

Mark Cantrell
President & CEO, Colorado Symphony Association


According to our Articles of Incorporation the Colorado Symphony Guild was organized to "support the symphony the Symphony monetarily and with in-kind services; to foster and encourage musical appreciation, knowledge and participation of the membership and public." We have done so for the past eighty-eight (88) years.

Our all volunteer organization's Colorado Gives Day fundraising goal is $10,000.

Our organization of 115 men and women is proud to support The Colorado Symphony through fundraising activities, supporting and sponsoring music programs and seminars for adults, donating funds for the purchase of music scores for the orchestra, and by volunteering in support capacities for the Colorado Symphony and Symphony Administration.

We are especially proud of our financial support for the Symphony Kids Concerts which bring the joy of classical music to school children throughout the Denver-Metro area.

Donations to the Symphony in recent years:

May of 2021 $43,000 donated to the Symphony (Covid year).

May of 2022 $67,140 donated to the Symphony

May of 2023 $68,498 donated to the Symphony

Each year we do an "in kind" donation of more than a 1000 hours to the Colorado Symphony yearly.

Background Statement

The Colorado Symphony Guild, Inc. was born in 1935. At that time, there were three orchestras in the Mile High City. Our organization would serve as a helpmate, not only in fundraising but as nurturer of an image of great music presentation and creation of future audiences from the youth of the city. Through the years the Guild sponsored various campaigns for support of the Symphony.

In addition to its fundraising activities, the Guild is now contributing via its Golden Circle memorial and honorary gifts program for the purchase of new music, music folders and additional supplies for the symphony and additional materials to assist with distributing music scores.
