In 2017 RSC partnered with Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra (FWPO) for a Real Time Feasibility Study in order to test the community’s confidence in the organization and the capacity to support its first endowment campaign in more than 15 years. After successful completion of the Study, RSC was engaged as counsel for a $6 million endowment campaign. In 2018, RSC began integrating endowment and Annual Fund efforts and developed a three-year Annual Fund Plan.




As part of a comprehensive campaign designed by RSC, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra has surpassed its initial $6 million major gift goal, while simultaneously expanding the number of Annual Fund donors by 30%.


What the client said

“The Philharmonic was ready to move to the next level when we engaged RSC. Thanks to their counsel, we are well on the way to completing a successful comprehensive campaign, while at the same time growing our Annual Fund, which had stagnated. With RSC's help, we are stronger than ever.” – James W. Palermo, Managing Director
