The endowment is the financial underpinning of The Jackson Symphony Orchestra Association. Sound Vision has provided facilities and programming for future generations. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the investment expertise of our Trustees, the endowment now exceeds $2 million, remarkable for a regional orchestra. Increasing the endowment is a top priority for securing the future of the JSO. Gifts to the endowment can be made outright during a donor’s lifetime or through a retirement plan, insurance policy, estate or trust. If you have any questions about this list or about endowment giving, please contact us.
