TAWANI Foundation Gifts $10M to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association

TAWANI Foundation, through its founder, Colonel (IL) Jennifer N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), announces its commitment of $10 million to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association (CSO). The multi-year gift includes a $5 million challenge grant, incentivizing other donors to join the effort. The funds will support the organization’s “SEMPRE ALWAYS: The Campaign for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra,” which will secure a steady financial future for the organization by increasing the corpus of the endowment fund, paying down debt and fully funding the musicians’ pension plan.

“As a long-time enthusiast and current CSOA Board Member, I am proud to support an esteemed cultural organization like the Chicago Symphony Orchestra through TAWANI Foundation,” Col. Pritzker said. “Our commitment honors the profound impact of the arts, uniting communities and inspiring generations, and it is a privilege to continue recognizing CSO’s vital role in enriching our shared community.”
