Just recently Boston's Museum of Science received a million dollar grant from Google. Today, Boston's Huntington Theatre received a gift of $10 million from The Calderwood Charitable Foundation, which has supported the theater for years. This gift instantly doubled Huntington Theatre's endowment.
"The Huntington has earned its standing as one of Boston's legacy cultural institutions, and its Board of Trustees is committed to assuring its continued health and artistic vitality for future generations," says Board Chairman Carol Deane. "This gift makes the Huntington stronger and more secure than ever before, but it does not alone guarantee our success. Therefore, we will use this generous gift as a catalyst and a challenge, launching a careful examination over the next twelve months of the Huntington's long-term needs. The end result will be a plan that ensures the Huntington's status as a major contributor to the cultural life of Boston for many years to come."
