Challenge Grant Could Be Big Boost In Colorado

“An unprecedented grant will speed the tempo of the new Colorado Springs Philharmonic’s march toward solvency – if the orchestra can raise $650,000 in four months. A quartet of regional foundations… have joined forces to offer a 2-to-1 challenge grant of $325,000, orchestra officials announced Tuesday. It’s the largest grant in the history of the former Colorado Springs Symphony, which went bankrupt earlier this year, then re-formed as the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.”
