Avangrid Foundation commits $400,000 towards renovations
Avangrid Foundation's gift of $400,000 toward the renovation of historic Kilbourn Hall is music to the ears of the University of Rochester (NY) Eastman School of Music. The contribution represents the largest single gift made in the history of Avangrid Foundation. The renovation project - to start this summer - will provide substantial renovations to the historic building.
The Avangrid Foundation, on behalf of AVANGRID subsidiary RG&E, is dedicated to supporting projects and organizations that enhance the quality of life in local communities. Among other Rochester area programs supported by the Avangrid Foundation are the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and the Rochester Museum of Science Center.
"I'm pleased to say that our commitment to the renovation of Kilbourn Hall is our largest-ever single gift in the Rochester community, and it is fitting that it should go to one of Rochester's most treasured and enduring institutions," said Bob Kump, President of the Avangrid Foundation. "Kilbourn Hall is one of Rochester's cultural jewels, and this renovation will ensure that the community can enjoy it for years to come."
