2021 Impact Report

2020 Impact Report

2019 Impact Report

My time with the NRO this past summer was nothing short of surreal. I learned so much from Carl Topilow and had a wonderful experience. If I could do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat. It’s definitely something I will cherish for the rest of my life.

There are several ways you can help support the musical excellence of the National Repertory Orchestra:

The NRO Endowment Trust was created in 2004 to provide long-term financial support for the NRO. It continues to grow through the generosity of many donors. We thank all those who have contributed to the long-term financial health of the NRO, and thus the long-term musical health of all the symphony orchestras who depend upon the NRO to help train their musicians.

Rather than giving money, an in-kind gift is the giving of a good or service. We always accept in-kind gifts to use in our auctions to raise money for our musicians.

Examples: office supplies, bikes for musicians, IT services, venues for fundraising events, summer housing for musicians and guest conductors, etc. The possibilities are endless and ever-appreciated!

Donate today: it all starts here.

Many companies and individuals match contributions given to the orchestra. If you would like to match contributions as an individual, please contact Åsa Armstrong at

Some companies match their current or retired employees’ contributions. Look for your company online under “matching gift company search” or check with your Human Resources department to see if you can double your contribution.

A number of individuals have already acted to provide future support for the orchestra. Leave your own lasting gift to the NRO through your will, trust, life income trust, IRA, retirement plan, life insurance designation, or other planned giving vehicle.

If you have made an estate provision, or are considering a planned gift, please let us know.
