Capital Campaign News
2014 was a great year for our campaign. Now let's bring it on home!
2014 was an incredible year for us – in so many ways! Now, in 2015, will you help us bring it down the “homestretch”?
We raised more than $1 million toward our Capital Campaign last year, thanks to Challenge Grants from Mike Nelson (our current Board President) and the Scan|Design Foundation, and the support of so many of you. That led to our Groundbreaking in August and, now, an estimated office move-in date of late April. We are preparing to announce our first Summer of programs – ranging from concerts, films and lectures to workshops, classes and family events – and a full slate of annual programs starting in the Fall. It has been an amazing twelve months and we are grateful that you have been part of it.
But – there is still much to do and now we hope you will help us reach our ultimate goal in 2015 – an additional $1 million to pay off the balance of the building. Though we have financing in place that covers the remaining building expense, we want to pay off the entire construction loan before any interest payments are accrued. We have twelve months to do that.
Are you among those who wanted to see solid progress before you committed to being part of project? Or, did you already make a commitment some time ago, and have been waiting to see how that original contribution was used before you committed anything further? Now is the time!
Your contribution to the Capital Campaign now will help us achieve a Vision that has been thirty years in the making. It will make possible programs of art, culture, history, language and more; as well as create a gathering place for all ages and interests.
Please share with your friends and co-workers about this new and vibrant part of our region, and encourage them to discover the wonderful opportunities we will offer.
