K-W Bailout Sees No Business Support

Donations have been trickling in in the last-ditch campaign to save Ontario’s Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony from bankruptcy (the orchestra needs to raise $2.5m by month’s end,) but corporate support has been largely nonexistent. “Money raised to date includes $782,680 donated by about 900 individuals. It also includes $250,000 from Waterloo Region, $170,000 from Kitchener, $85,000 from Waterloo and $230,000 pledged by 18 symphony board members.”
