Volunteers & Annual Pledge
In addition to providing a consistent, dedicated small army of volunteers to support the Richmond Symphony,
the RSL makes an annual financial pledge to the Richmond Symphony. Typically, this contribution to the
Symphony’s annual fund for operating expenses is $100,000 to $150,000.
The RSL fundraising events and direct donations are the primary source for this revenue with the
biennial Designer House accounting for a significant portion of all funds raised. In addition to this
direct donation to the Richmond Symphony, the RSL contributes directly to the Youth Orchestra of
the Richmond Symphony and sponsors concerts throughout the year.
