Oregon Symphony continues onward and upward financially

In its most recent newsletter, the Oregon Symphony says that donations are up and the organization might be able to end the year in the black. Considering the economic struggles everywhere, this is a cheery note! Here's the verbiage from the newsletter:
Thanks to You … Your end-of-the-year gifts to the Oregon Symphony in December made a huge difference, keeping us right on track to qualify for a $1 million grant from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. Thanks to you, we raised more than $829,000 in the final weeks of 2010 (including 630 new gifts!) – nearly 8 percent more than last year. We're just below our halfway mark of $875,000 for the first six months of the year, but we are confident that with your continued support we will reach our goal by the end of our fiscal year June 30 and balance our budget for the second year in a row. Bravo! Thank you for supporting great music passionately played.
