Foundation & Government Partners

Foundation support makes a vital contribution to the Houston Symphony’s Annual Fund and General Endowment, underwriting a wide range of concert series, educational programs and community outreach activities.

The Houston Symphony is fortunate to have the generous and longstanding support of numerous local, regional and national foundations, whose grants play a vital role in maintaining the orchestra’s artistic excellence and organizational strength.

The Houston Symphony is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. We are also grateful for the support of the National Endowment for the Arts, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and Miller Theatre Advisory Board. Each season, government grants underwrite a variety of projects, ranging from special commissions by distinguished composers to education and community engagement programs.

The Houston Symphony is proud to recognize the leadership and support of our foundation and government partners that allow the orchestra to serve our community.
