Saint Louis Symphony Nears Fundraising Goal

By Tom Weber, KWMU

St. Louis, MO – The Saint Louis Symphony has now raised $30 million towards a $40 million goal to meet a challenge grant.

The drive is a response to the Taylor family, which has pledged 40 million dollars if the Symphony could raise that same amount by Dec. 31, 2004.

"Raising $30 million is a big step toward our goal," the symphony's director of Development, Faith Maddy, said in a statement. "But raising the remaining $10 million will be the toughest challenge yet.

Maddy added more of the final $10 million will likely have to come from individual contributors.
