“The arts inspire people and give them a way to express what is important to them. It’s reasurring to know that The Dayton Foundation has its ear to the ground and will have the flexibility to support the efforts with the greatest impact on the arts long after we're gone.” – Leona and Jane Dunwoodie, Dayton Foundation donors since 1999
