Our Donors

Friends of NJIO

In our ongoing efforts to provide an extraordinary experience for our musicians and our audiences, we turn to our wonderful friends to help us Bridge the Generations with music. Our supporters are our family, and the NJIO family is a very special one. We count on the support of our Friends to help with all aspects of NJIO, from providing exceptional guest artists to compensating the talented and dedicated artistic staff.

Friends of NJIO gifts are also the driving force behind several of the special events and community outreach. If you are not currently a Friend of NJIO, we urge you to support one of the finest orchestra organizations of its kind in the country.  As a supporter, you would provide valuable assistance. we look forward to seeing the Friends of NJIO at events throughout the season.
