The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra Foundation (CPOF) was formed under the Societies Act of Alberta in 1984 and is a non-profit, independent, trustee governed body that is arms-length from the Calgary Philharmonic Society. As a registered charity, its objectives are responsible stewardship and growth of the endowment so as to provide a dependable long term revenue stream in support of the operations of the Calgary Philharmonic Society. Funding decisions (including renewed allocation of funds to the CPO) are solely at the discretion of the Foundation Trustees and are reviewed annually.
The CPOF is now the CPO’s largest supporter, contributing $1,800,000 in 2015/2016 Season. This contribution is up more than 70% from the 2013/2014 Season where the CPOF contributed $1,050,000.
Your donation to the CPO Foundation will be held in perpetuity to sustain the CPO. Thanks to generous gifts to the CPOF, the market value of the Foundation’s investments has increased to almost $32,000,000 as of June 30, 2015.
Donations made to the CPOF by November 30 are eligible for matching Dollars from the Canada Cultural Investment Fund.
