There's no question that the Reno Jazz Orchestra is alive and well today due to personal donations to our organization.  It is because of this support, we can continue to keep jazz alive and vibrant throughout Northern Nevada and enhance our student education programs as well.

An outright gift is the most convenient and easiest form of giving.  Cash is the most common way to support the Reno Jazz Orchestra. Legacy Donors can support the Annual Fund which is an unrestricted fund that allows the RJO to give to the most pressing needs; donors can also choose to financially support specific programs.

When individuals contribute to our Annual Jazz Legacy Donation program, they can be recognized in our Performance Programs, on our Website, in selected Direct Mail, and Emails to our fans.  In addition, all Legacy participants are invited to exclusive Intermission Receptions and guest artist "Meet and Greet" events, and private concerts throughout the year.

The following information highlights our Legacy Donation Levels:
  • Platinum Donor          $20,000+
  • Gold Level Donor       $10,000 – $19,999
  • Silver Level Donor      $5,000 – $9,999
