Individual Gifts

Support from our loyal individual donors has allowed us to emerge from a year of setbacks and adaptations much stronger and nimbler than ever before. As we anticipate an exciting return to live audiences and full orchestras in our upcoming 2021-22 season, will you join our community of music lovers and music makers?

The Shreveport Symphony Orchestra’s Annual Fund drive is based on the fiscal year, which begins July 1 and ends June 30. During the next few years when ticket revenue will undoubtedly take time to rebuild, your annual fund investment is more important and appreciated than ever.

Donors like you are why we are able to fulfill our mission. Donors of a certain level can enjoy Symphony Club hospitality before and during Willis-Knighton Masterworks Series concerts at the RiverView Theater, complimentary valet parking, back stage tours and invitations to exclusive Patron events. See donor benefits below.
