Foundation Support

Orion is indebted to the support of the Illinois Arts Council for its programs. In addition, Orion receives funding from the MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelly Foundation and the ArtsWork Fund for Organizational Development, along with private support from many individual donors.

A previous grant from the Aaron Copland Fund for Music recognized Orion’s dedication to furthering new and contemporary works. Gifts from anonymous donors have made several major commissions possible.
