Artistic Excellence, Community, Innovation + Capacity

Ad Astra: Building to New Heights

On 15 October 2020 we launched a capital campaign that will build a secure future for the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and its contributions to the cultural fabric of Calgary. Ad Astra: Building to New Heights focuses on pursuing artistic excellence, strengthening our community, and ensuring a sustainable future.

The goal of the capital campaign is to grow the endowment established by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra Foundation in 1984. We receive a portion of the return earned on the fund each year — the Foundation has become our largest annual funder, exceeding all levels of government support. Over the next five years, we are aiming to increase the endowment by $25 million, which will allow us to plan ahead with a focus on providing quality performance, education, and outreach programs.
