We almost made it..
The formal Capital Campaign ended January 31, and we just cracked half a million dollars. We came very close to our goal of $544,500 but are still $33,160 short. If you haven’t had a chance to make your commitment, you can still donate.
Our goal averaged to a commitment of around $1,000 per member ($2,000 per couple), which can be spread out over the course of 3 years. To clarify, this is not an expectation that all members can or will be able to commit $1,000 – that’s just the average.
Thanks to the wonderful kickoff boost we received from George Lanning and his estate, we started the campaign OVER halfway to our goal of $544,500.
