A new documentary that spotlights Tom Golisano's philanthropic efforts

Did you get a chance to see 30 Years of Miracles: Tom Golisano and a Legacy of Giving, WXXI's new documentary that explores the extraordinary life of Rochester entrepreneur and philanthropist B. Thomas Golisano? It premiered Thursday, April 28th on WXXI-TV, but you can watch it online right now, or anytime at your convenience by clicking here.

We have received great feedback from the community about the documentary, which takes a fresh look at how this self-made billionaire has left an indelible mark on the world around him. It is a follow up to WXXI’s 2003 documentary Golisano, which profiled him after he purchased the Buffalo Sabres. It features an intimate in-studio conversation with Golisano, never-before-shared images from the Golisano Family collection, and items from the newly opened Golisano Archive at Rochester Institute of Technology, as well as archival footage of a 1994 WXXI interview with Golisano. 

Whether you're watching it for the first time, or viewing an encore, we hope you enjoy learning more about Tom and his philanthropic efforts.
