Support for big three arts groups rocking forward

Despite some earlier hope, the Donnelley Foundation is holding off on a plan to give the embatled Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Charleston Ballet Theatre, and Charleston Stage a $250,000 matching grant to encourage donations from the community.

The Charleston City Paper has the latest.

Earlier this week the Charleston Symphony Orchestra announced some past supporters are offering to match $75,000 in donations -- provided the individual donations are at least $1,000.
