Salt Lake City — Utah Symphony | Utah Opera (USUO) has launched The Campaign for Perpetual Motion, a $20 million public fundraising campaign intended to build and showcase the organization throughout Utah and outside the state. USUO publicly announced the campaign and its lead gift of $5 million from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation at the Utah Symphony’s concert on Friday.
“We are developing exciting plans surrounding the 75th anniversary of the Utah Symphony, including recording, broadcasting and touring not only statewide, but also nationally and internationally,” said USUO president and CEO Melia Tourangeau.
Special plans in development include:
“We have a long-term partnership with USUO that began with Uncle George and Aunt Lolie Eccles themselves 30 years ago, and a firm belief in the importance of this great organization,” said Eccles Foundation chairman and CEO Spencer F. Eccles.
In addition to its $5 million lead gift for the new Campaign for Perpetual Motion, the Eccles Foundation’s $1 million in 2011-2012 helped cap off USUO’s Leadership Campaign. Through the Leadership Campaign, USUO received commitments from approximately 35 individuals, corporations, and foundations, including a $4.6 million capstone commitment from O.C. Tanner Company.
