During the inaugural Give Local York fundraising event in 2018, the York Symphony Orchestra rehearsed for the Back in the USSR concert at the Appell Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, May 4, 2018. During the 2019 Give Local York event, the orchestra received 42 donations totaling $22,006.

After the second 24-hour Give Local York fundraising campaign yielded $3 million in charitable donations for York County organizations earlier this month, the Cultural Alliance of York County recently added its own boost to the total.

The Cultural Alliance donated an additional $25,000 in a matching "stretch pool" to benefit 40 arts organizations in the county and region. 

The groups that will receive stretch pool gifts include the Goodridge Freedom Center, Hanover Area Historical Society, Inclusive Arts Movement York/Philanthropic Endeavors, Susquehanna Folk Music Society Folk Festival and York Symphony Orchestra.
