The Amy Ferguson Institute is deeply grateful for the generous support of many contributors to the commissioning, premiere production and tour of KHAOS. Without this support the commissioning of KHAOS would have been impossible.
We are especially thankful for the enthusiastic support of numerous individuals in the Nelson area whose early private donations were instrumental in getting KHAOS started. Over 50% of the total amount raised for this ambitious project came from individual direct donations or from fundraising events mounted by the Amy Ferguson Institute and patronized by opera enthusiasts in the Nelson area.
In addition to these private contributions, the following organizations and businesses also supported this project (in chronological order):
The Osprey Community Foundation
The BC Arts Council – Music Commissioning Awards program
The Columbia Basin Trust – Community Initiatives Program
The Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance
The City of Nelson
The Regional District of Central Kootenay; Areas E, F and H
The Vancouver Foundation
Royal Theatre, Trail, BC
Nelson and District Credit Union
