Your contributions to West Michigan Symphony help to sustain a vital community resource. Nearly 60% of contributions to WMS during the 2018-19 season came from individual patrons, with the remainder generated from corporate and foundation support. We extend our deepest appreciation to you for helping make WMS a cultural touchstone in our community.

The listings below represent total pledges and gifts by each patron household from August 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019. This includes our Annual Fund, Education Fund, and other special initiatives. In particular, we wish to express our gratitude to Mike and Kay Olthoff for their support of our Year-End Matching Challenge.

We have given careful attention to ensure a complete and accurate list. Please notify us of any inaccuracies by calling 231.726.3231.
