Dear dancey
Being an American company, VGM Classics wanted to ask an English-based community for ideas first. So, I did it here.
In Japan, I announced the idea etc through my personal twitter and that all so far. The company wants to wait little bit until they get the Japanese office info sorted etc. I think it will take a few more days.

A general fundraising goal of an orchestral CD album project would be $40,000. As it is stated on the company's site, the company will do all-or-nothing fundraising to be fair, of course. If this amount is met, the album will be recorded and a CD and digital audio files will be published. Since the company decided to go on-demand route, there will not be out-of-print CD...
Comparing to Video Game Live, the fundraising goal is significantly lower, and this is possible because VGM Classics, as a recording label, doesn't plan to do a live concert, and the company was set up in a way that its operating cost is very low and don't have to include that part, other management and non-musical cost into fundraising.
