Foundation for the Victoria Symphony

What is the Foundation for the Victoria Symphony?

The Foundation secures the future of our community’s orchestra by carefully managing funds that come mostly from local music lovers who leave gifts—large and small—in their estate plans. Principal investments are held in perpetuity while the interest is used to finance our ongoing programs each year. The Foundation takes great care in having contributions matched by granting agencies such as Heritage Canada, often doubling donations that are made to support the orchestra’s future. It is thanks to these visionary supporters and their desire to nurture the future of arts in our community that we can ensure the Victoria Symphony remains a vital force for generations to enjoy.

A Tribute to Lois Voigt Stockey

Lois passed away in August 2019, leaving bequests to many of Victoria’s arts organizations, including the Victoria Symphony, the Conservatory of Music, and Pacific Opera. A great patron of the arts, she showed her support in many ways throughout her lifetime and left behind a wonderful legacy, fulfilling her wish to honour the Victoria Symphony. In this year of uncertainty, Lois’s gift will help ensure that the Foundation for the Victoria Symphony is able to continue to provide the Victoria Symphony with the necessary funds to survive and thrive.
