Your generosity makes an important difference.

Donors like you support nearly one-third of the costs of a PVS season!


Your support helps us to:

  • Premiere new orchestral and choral works

  • Offer scholarships to talented young musicians

  • Bring world-class soloists to the Pioneer Valley

  • Provide a free education program for 1000 local 3rd/4th graders


...and so much more!


Your consistent support through automatic monthly gifts helps us plan our season with confidence.

The SMART choice:

  • Set it and forget it! Your one-time transaction will provide consistent monthly support.

  • Make a bigger impact, without feeling the financial strain of one larger gift.

  • Automatically renew your gift at the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1).

  • Reduce the number of appeals you receive, saving the PVS resources.

  • Touch the lives of audience members and musicians by helping to underwrite our innovative artistic programming and performances.

The best part? You’re in control!

You set the amount you would like to contribute each month, and we’ll do the rest. Your gift will continue to be deducted from your credit card monthly until you decide to cancel it. You can make changes to your gift at any time.


Donations may be made in honor or in memoriam. All donors are listed in the season program book; donors may elect to be recognized anonymously. Conductor’s Circle members may receive invitations to special donor events.

Designating the Pioneer Valley Symphony as a beneficiary on your retirement or profit-sharing account is a simple way of ensuring that your estate plan includes a gift to support classical music. Plus, IRA charitable rollover contributions to the PVS may provide tax benefits to you! If you are age 72 or older, you can make a qualified charitable distribution directly from your traditional or Roth IRA to the Pioneer Valley Symphony.


Remembering the PVS in your will, trust or estate plan makes the joy and enrichment of audiences, musicians and students through accessible, live classical music part of your legacy. 


To recognize the generosity of individuals who have included the PVS in their estate plans, we have created the Da Capo Society


Regardless of the amount, your contribution will have an enduring impact on our community. It might endow an education program and touch the lives of thousands of school children, or an orchestral section chair in direct support of our public concerts, or a staff position to inspire creativity and growth. 

To determine the best options for you, you should always consult an attorney or other tax professional.
