Music to Our Ears
Perot Fund Symphony Grant – 1985
Thanks to H. Ross Perot’s $10 million donation through a fund established at CFT, the community foundation became a player in the construction of the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, named in honor Perot’s friend and business associate. The internationally acclaimed home of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra was designed by I.M. Pei and modeled after European concert halls known for their acoustic superiority. The Perot grant was an integral event for the arts community in Dallas and also broke philanthropic records. In 1985, the grant was the largest donation from a community foundation to an arts organization.
