In January the Detroit Institute of Arts pledged to raise $100 million for the federally mediated grand bargain as part of Detroit’s bankruptcy.
Six months later, the museum announced that it has moved past the $80 million mark in its fund-raising with nine additional corporate donations totaling $26.8 million. The largest gifts made public today were $10 million from Penske Corp. and $5 million each from DTE Energy and Dan Gilbert’s Quicken Loans and Rock Ventures. DIA board chair Gene Gargaro said the museum hopes to reach its $100 million goal by Labor Day.
“When people began to call me in February and said we want to be part of your success, I felt very optimistic,” said Gargaro. “But there was no substitute for being on this 24-7.”
Other gifts announced today were $2.5 million from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan; $1 million each from Meijer, Comerica Bank and JPMorgan Chase Foundation; $800,000 from Consumers Energy and $500,000 from the Delta Air Lines Foundation.
