Fine Instrument Fund

The Fine Instrument Fund:

"Because a fine symphony orchestra deserves fine instruments"

The Fine Instrument Fund (FIF), which was established in 1984, is a fund designated solely for the purchase of instruments for use by PSO musicians while under contract with the PSO. These instruments are the property of the PSO. 

In addition to generous donations, the FIF generates funds through 50/50 raffles at PSA events and the sale of commemorative cards, a distinctive way to acknowledge special events or as a memorial. Since 1988, the FIF has purchased twenty-two instruments for the PSO.
