Carnegie hall was built with his own money (ill gotten, some people would argue, as he was an industrialist) and was in his family's ownership for decades. So, I dunno, does that count?

Well then we're in the tricky area of people like, The Sacklers, using philanthropy to whitewash their names.

    Or a printed program with a list of donors?

I'm kind of flattered you hold me in a regard that you think I'm cultured enough to be in the proximity of those things on the regular. :)

Call me a socialist, but I think everyone who can donate "philanthropy" levels of money to various causes has some blood on their hands.

'scuse me, how much did soros pay you to make this comment? I've only been getting $5 per, maybe you could help me negotiate for that big big commie money

Valid! I don't think it does.

No worries, I've mostly seen those things at the symphonies my ex used to bring me to. We got a lot of free tickets because she was in the music program - After awhile, you learn who the real bougie people in your city are because their names are printed in a classical font under the "[DIAMOND | LEGACY | FOUNDER | PLATINUM] DONORS" heading :)

Ah shit, I've annihilated the image you had of me as a scrappy rebellious lad just trying to make his way through the world!
