Our Strategic Plan
We will enhance our artistic product through exceptional, exciting and impactful art.
$18,000,000 By doubling the current size of the endowment, which has performed in the top five percent of funds in the country for the past twenty years, these gifts will ensure the Symphony continues to serve Northeast Florida for generations to come.
$5,000,000 Jacoby Symphony Hall is one of the Southeastern United States’ only designated symphonic music venues, and these capital improvement funds will protect this cultural resource as well as enhance the community’s experience with the Symphony.
$50,000,000 This successful campaign will realize:
Enhanced artistic excellence,making the Jacksonville Symphony a recognized national leader among American symphony orchestras. Increased audiences through enhanced accessibility, expanded educational opportunities and increased reach, developing patrons of today and tomorrow. Essential capital upgrades, such as acoustical improvements, patron amenities and technical upgrades to Jacoby Symphony Hall.
