Harold and Maureen Bornstein have been involved and engaged members of our Greater New Haven community for over six decades. A graduate of Yale Medical School, Harold’s selfless work as a pediatrician in our neighborhoods and local hospitals gave the gift of wellness and peace of mind to countless children and families from all walks of life. Maureen’s mission, in turn, has been the intellectual growth of these very same youngsters, serving tirelessly as an elementary school teacher. She and Harold crossed paths through their advocacy with the Board of Education and the rest is history. Although both have since retired, their enthusiastic involvement in the community has yet to miss a beat. Harold is famous throughout town as the cultivator of beautiful spider plants, donating his finest specimens to charitable causes across New Haven and earning the well-deserved nickname “Spiderman.” As loyal and enthusiastic patrons of your New Haven Symphony Orchestra, they have provided many marvelous spider plants to our Galas and charitable auctions. Harold and Maureen both recognize that their ability to ensure the future of beautiful music in New Haven goes beyond annual charity. They decided to create a legacy with your Symphony by establishing a Charitable Gift Annuity with the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. Their membership in the Legacy Society affirms that the music they love will continue to flourish in the lives of the children they spent both their careers serving. All the while, they will enjoy financial security throughout their retirement as their gift annuity generates a guaranteed income for life.
