Findlay couple boosts BGSU arts center

Findlay residents Thomas and Kathleen Donnell have announced a $750,000 gift to support the Wolfe Center for the Arts.

Their gift will provide for the main theater within the planned arts center on campus. In addition to the theater, the new facility will contain classrooms as well as production and studio spaces to link students and faculty in the School of Art, the Department of Theatre and Film and the College of Musical Arts.

The arts center project, which is part of Building Dreams: The Centennial Campaign for BGSU, was initiated when the state awarded BGSU $8.7 million in capital funding to build a state-of-the-art arts complex. The University is raising additional funds to complete the facility.

“Tom and Kate Donnell are valued members of the Bowling Green State University family,” said President Sidney Ribeau. “For many years they have supported the University; their gift to the Wolfe Center for the Arts is another indication of their commitment to the arts and to northwest Ohio.”
