Ways to Give



(It’s How We Can Present Free Concerts.)

The Waynesboro Symphony Orchestra (WSO) is a non-profit organization of professional, amateur and student musicians serving Waynesboro, Staunton, Charlottesville and other Central Virginia Communities. The WSO provides dedicated instrumentalists with opportunities to collaborate in an intergenerational and educational environment, to share in the joy of music-making and to contribute to the cultural vitality of the region.

“The free concert performances that are the cornerstone of our season are possibly through the generosity of our Individual Donors, Corporate Sponsors and Legacy Society estate gifts. We are humbled and honored by your gifts!” – Charles Salembier

To make a tax-deductible gift to the orchestra, please click on the secure “Online Donation” link below to use your credit card, or you may mail your check to: Waynesboro Symphony Orchestra, PO Box 671, Waynesboro, VA 22980. For any questions, please email our Board President,  Charles Salembier.

Legacies Inspire.

Many members of our community who support the Waynesboro Symphony have already made provisions to create a charitable investment for the WSO through their estate plans. Whether you name WSO in your will or trust, a beneficiary of a retirement plan, stock or other assets, life insurance, or charitable gift annuity; incorporating charitable gifts in your estate plan may allow you to give a greater gift later than you may comfortably give during your lifetime.
