Kobacker Society

The Toledo Symphony Kobacker Society was founded two decades ago to honor the legacy of Marvin Kobacker's selfless service to the orchestra for over 50 years as a Trustee. The Kobacker Society recognizes and honors donors, like Marvin and his wife Lenore, who make a long-term commitment to sustaining the excellence of the orchestra and Toledo Symphony music education programs through their estate plans.

Membership in the Kobacker Society is open to visionary individuals who make a gift provision of any kind to the Toledo Symphony in their estate plans.

If you are planning to make a gift to the Symphony through your estate, please allow us to include your name among the members of the Kobacker Society listed in the program book and thank you personally at a future concert or Kobacker Society event.
