Gifts are essential in our ability to continue to provide quality artistic programming and meaningful educational outreach to the Erie community. 



New for 2016-17

All new and increased gifts towards our Emanuel Ax Residency will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a very generous gift from Thomas B. Hagen.  Call 455-1375 to learn more!


More than 25% of our annual budget comes from the Phil’s Annual Fund Appeal and enables us to complete our mission: to strengthen the community by providing high quality, live orchestra programs to people of all ages across the region. We truly hope that you will consider supporting the work of the Erie Philharmonic by making a gift to share in the excitement.
