The Center Receives Largest Donations in its History
The Center has received a 1.8 million dollar donation from an anonymous donor, the largest donation in the Center’s nearly 40-year history. The purpose of the donation is for the Center to purchase and renovate a new facility and increase staffing and program capacity. In addition, The Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation has committed a $500,000 matching grant in support of a new endowment fund to provide for maintenance, upkeep and renovation of the new facility.
"The Center is an essential resource for the Cleveland community," said Jason Fishman, executive director of The Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation. "Phyllis Harris and the board of directors, led by Bryan Bowser, have been providing inspired vision and careful stewardship, and the Center is stronger than ever. The Foundation is fully confident that by making this challenge grant for the endowment, the Center will continue to thrive well into the future.”
The endowment fund will be an enduring legacy that will provide community members the opportunity to ensure the sustainability of the Center. Up to $500,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Maltz Family Foundation until June 30, 2016.
The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland is proud to acknowledge two new partnerships that will have a lasting impact on the Cleveland LGBT community.
