Tallahassee Symphony taps Mary Saathoff as director of philanthropy

Posted on: November 23, 2021

Florida’s Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra has appointed MARY SAATHOFF as its first-ever director of philanthropy. Saathoff served as president and CEO of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra in Texas for several years, stepping down in 2017, and has been a development officer at Texas Tech University and the owner of a private business. During her tenure as CEO of the Lubbock Symphony, Saathoff raised over $3 million toward the orchestra’s endowment, secured over $650,000 for capital projects, and led successful fundraisers. The new director of philanthropy position at the Tallahassee Symphony is made possible by two long-time supporters who wish to remain anonymous.
