On Giving Tuesday, Toledo Symphony receives $1 million gift

Posted on: December 1, 2017

“An anonymous donor has pledged $1 million to the Toledo Symphony,” reads an unsigned Thursday (11/30) article in the Toledo Blade (Ohio). “The symphony learned of the gift, which will be broken up into two payments of $500,000 over the next two years, on Giving Tuesday this week. It’s one of the largest donations ever made to the symphony. The first payment will go to the operating budget, while the second will be a dollar-for-dollar matching grant for the orchestra’s 75th anniversary season…. The Toledo Symphony also received more than $35,000 in other donations on Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving that is informally used as a day to give to charitable organizations.” Said Zak Vassar, the orchestra’s president and CEO, “We’ve learned that this community really values creativity, imagination, and curiosity. This incredible gift embodies that spirit and will allow the orchestra to expand our place in Toledo’s creative fabric.”
