Build a Kentucky where music thrives


Make a Donation

With your gift to the Lexington Philharmonic, you make music possible.

Ticket Sales cover just 30% of the costs required to support the Lexington Philharmonic. Our performances, youth and education programs, and community engagement activities are possible because of your support.

Your gift helps us translate our core values of artistic excellence, innovation, collaboration and accessibility into music. When you donate, you are empowering through education and creating opportunities for kids like these who attend our annual Music Builds Discovery! Concert.

LexPhil is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, supported by a community of music lovers who believe that meaningful cultural experiences are not only vital to a life that celebrates the greatest potential of the human spirit, but vital to a vibrant, engaged, strong community. That’s the power of your gift.


Individual Contributors

Through your contribution, you help LexPhil engage thousands of individuals to bring our community together through the power of music. Your support also funds LexPhil’s programs to educate young people throughout central and eastern Kentucky with educational and community programs, which would not be possible without your gifts. Please consider making a pledge or contribution today. Every gift makes a difference!
