Erie Philharmonic Receives Endowment Gifts

The Erie Philharmonic celebrated two major gifts to its endowment at a luncheon in early May. The gifts, from two separate anonymous donors, are for $2 million and $2.5 million. The philharmonic is in the middle of a two-year campaign to increase its endowment through planned estate pledges. With a starting point of $2.2 million last season, the orchestra’s goal is to have $10 million in endowment funds and planned gift pledges by the end of the 2019-20 season. Musicians of the Erie Philharmonic are members of Local 17 (Erie, PA).
