Sonoma State University lost one of its most generous patrons and supporters this week with the passing of Donald Green. Along with his late wife Maureen, Green helped to create the Donald and Maureen Green Music Center at Sonoma State. The music center project was one of great vision and ambition that helped redefine music and the arts at Sonoma State and the greater North Bay region.
“Don Green’s heart, passion, and integrity were huge,” said SSU President Judy Sakaki. “His vision, ideas, and philanthropy transformed Sonoma State and our community. The Green Music Center is his legacy. We are forever grateful to this very special leader.”
Through his generosity and vision, Green has touched thousands of people in the North Bay and beyond. The Green Music Center is a treasured venue for cultural and musical performances. Sonoma State and the Green Music Center will build on his legacy, paying tribute to Green through continued dedication to music, education, and our region.
