In continuing our series on being Grateful for Change, this week we want to shine a spotlight on our amazing DONORS. During this past year of many, many changes, we have been trying to focus on the things that have been positive.
Donations have come in from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Every donation matters, every donation counts, and all donations have helped keep the Grand Rapids Symphony in a position to provide music for our community. This year our donors have really stepped up to help us continue our mission of sharing great music!
Below is a note from our Senior Vice President for Development, Diane Lobbestael:
How often have you thought or heard others comment on how grateful they are to live in West Michigan? Our quality of place is extraordinary. Grand Rapids and West Michigan offers so much beyond access to natural beauty and a strong economy. We share access to great art – visual, performing, botanical and musical arts. Each art form, as well our museums, enriches our lives, educates, enlightens and inspires us, as well as broadening our world.
Founded and funded by the community 90 years ago, the Grand Rapids Symphony’s contribution to the fabric of West Michigan is established and respected. We are grateful for a history of leadership donors who allow the orchestra to serve our region in the hall, in the community and, now, virtually. Investments, big and small, provide the orchestra’s performances to the delight of patrons of every age. Individuals, foundations and corporations sustain the orchestra by making it a priority in their philanthropy…an enduring West Michigan tradition that shows no sign of changing.
Thank you donors, we are grateful for you!
