Commemorative Fund

You can establish your very own commemorative fund with an objective that helps meet the orchestra’s needs. You are free to decide on a name for the fund.

Your own name, or that of a loved one, will thus live on 

The minimum amount for establishing a commemorative fund is €50,000

RCO Foundation allows you to establish your very own commemorative fund with a specific objective that helps meet the orchestra’s needs. You are free to choose the name of your fund. You may decide to use your own name, or that of a loved one. You may even opt to name the fund after the purpose for which it was established.

The minimum amount for establishing a commemorative fund is €50,000, either as a one-time donation or in five annual instalments of €10,000. As an example, a donation of €10,000 a year over a period of at least five years means the RCO Foundation receives the full amount of €10,000 each year, while under the current 52% net tax scheme, it costs you just €4,150.
