During her lifetime, Madge Rothschild’s philanthropy in support of many local charities was frequent and generous, but, far more often than not, was done anonymously. Aware of her mortality, Madge established The Madge Rothschild Foundation and at death willed her remaining estate to it in order that her support for various local charitable organizations would be continued. The Fort Wayne Philharmonic was one of the charities she supported, remarking, “Without The Phil, there would be so much less culture in this city for us to be proud of and for me to enjoy with others.”
The Phil is truly one of our most important assets, enhancing northeastern Indiana in the areas of culture, education, and economic development. All of us at Sweetwater are looking forward to an exciting season of memorable performances.
STAR is proud to call Fort Wayne home. As a local company, we’re dedicated to making our city an ideal place to raise a family. That is why we created Family of STARs, our community involvement initiative that supports family-oriented programming. The Phil Family Music Series is one of those underwriting commitments. (The three-part Family Series is held in IPFW’s Auer Performance Hall). The programs showcase classical music to families in a fun, relaxed setting. The perfect fit for a culturally rich family experience.
