Donor Recognition

Special Spring 2020 Tribute

The Spring of 2020 has been an unexpected whirlwind of events. Like everyone else all around the world, New Philharmonia has had to adjust to a new normal, cutting short our 25th Season. While we plan for the future of our organization and explore new ways to share our musicians’ talents and passion virtually, we’d like to recognize the following members of our community who have made generous donations to our organization. We are extremely grateful for the thoughtful donations we have received during this time of great uncertainty.

NPO 25/125 Recognition

This year, to celebrate our 25th Anniversary Season, we launched a special fundraising campaign – the NPO 25/125 Campaign. This season, we’re striving to raise $125,000 to support continued programming for our “Music for All” mission. All one-time gifts given to unspecified funds throughout the 2019/2020 season will go to our NPO 25/125 Campaign Fund.

The New Philharmonia Orchestra is most grateful to the following donors for their gifts received since November 1, 2019. Without the thoughtful gifts of so many, New Phil would not be able to continue its “Music for All” mission, vision, and tradition. Thank you!
