TSO’s endowment began with a visionary gift from the Estate of Margery Mayo Bird. Margery and her husband, Jim, were early and enthusiastic supporters of the Symphony. This legacy bequest is a very positive symbol of belief in TSO’s perpetuity. The Margery Mayo Bird Endowment began a reserve upon which we will build financial bedrock for fulfilling the organization’s  long-term mission.

The Albert and Hete Barthelmes Foundation has offered to match any contribution, pledge or planned gift to Tulsa Symphony’s Endowment Fund. Please contact Angela Carter, Development Director at angela@tulsasymphony.org for information.
