Tom Golisano Withdrawing His Support For Performing Arts Center in Rochester
Philanthropist and entrepreneur Tom Golisano announced today that he is withdrawing his support of $25 million for the Performing Arts Center in Rochester, NY.
Golisano said, “I originally made this decision to support the Preforming Arts Center in 2016. Now two years later, the project is no closer to becoming a reality. It has dramatically changed in scope, becoming part of a larger entertainment complex, which is not in line with my philanthropic priorities. It has also not garnered the financial support it needs from the community. It is time for me to move on to the many other projects we are working on in this region that need support and that are more aligned with my philanthropic priorities.”
