The Elgin Symphony Orchestra in the Chicago area has raised enough money to finish its 2017/18-season, the management said. Over $140,000 have been raised, and will go toward the 2018-19 season and an endowment. The orchestra says that it is still in acute need and will continue fundraising.

The symphony’s annual budget runs $2.2 million, with $1.5 million coming from personal donations, foundations, corporate gifts and grants, with the rest, about a third, coming from ticket sales.
