St. Louis Symphony Digs Out

The St. Louis Symphony, which earlier this season said it was in danger of collapse if a major emergency fundraising campaign wasn’t successful, says it has raised three-quarters of the $40 million it needs to survive. “With $30 million pledged or in hand, the Symphony has 20 months left to bring in the remaining $10 million. But to be really healthy, the Symphony needs more than the $85 million to $90 million in endowment that it will have by the end of the campaign – somewhere more in the neighborhood of $150 million.”
