Passionate Philanthropy

It is from our friends’ generous giving that we can keep music alive and thriving. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Endowment Fund

In June 2001, Merrimack Valley Philharmonic Society, Inc. created a permanent endowment fund for the purpose of supporting the operational needs of the orchestra. The principal of the fund is held in trust in perpetuity and invested by the President and Treasurer under the direction of the Board of Directors’ Investment and Endowment Committee.

The MVPS Inc. Endowment Fund is available as a means for those who desire to make gifts or bequests to the MVPS that will have a lasting effect and benefit to the orchestra and will also help ensure the continuance of classical music for years to come. Some contributors have made gifts in recognition of or in memory of loved ones while others simply have contributed to express their enthusiasm for live classical music performance.

If you are interested in making a donation please send a check payable to the MVPS Inc. Endowment Fund and send to
