Recognizing Legacy Gifts
The Mary Elizabeth Mitchell Society commemorates the life of its namesake and recognizes all planned giving donors to The Florida Orchestra. Mrs. Mitchell not only contributed more than $1 million to the Orchestra during her lifetime, but she also provided for the orchestra’s future. She established a trust that ever since her death in 1999 has benefited the organization.
