Friends of the Orlando Philharmonic

Reporting Volunteer Hours

Thank you for being a Friend of the Phil and for volunteering your time in support of the Orchestra!

Your efforts not only directly help the Orchestra and reduce expenses, but a high number of annual volunteer hours increases the Orchestra's chances of securing grants and obtaining United Arts funding; this is why it helps if you tell us how many volunteer hours you put in. Also, the top ten volunteers each get a free ticket to the annual concert at the Springs!

Do include your travel time from home, coming and going!

Do not include your attendance at concerts or fundraisers unless you work at them, such as a reception, boutique, handling surveys, hosting or some other assigned task.

Please use decimals rather than fractions to report partial hours.
