In another life, I'm a cider maker, and I get apples from Washington State
University's experimental cider orchard. The Research Center does not
charge me for the apples, but I make a separate annual contribution to
WSU's School of Agriculture equal to the wholesale value of the fruit.
Is there any reason why you can't make a separate donation to the NY
Philharmonic that is not a quid pro quo payment?
