Contingency Fund Campaign for Campus Construction
The Center has been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Economic Development Program for a grant/loan to build the first phase of the campus. However, before requesting the funds, the Board of Directors has set a goal of raising $200,000 in additional funds prior to accepting the loan in order to have a “cushion” in our Capital Campaign Fund for any unforeseen costs or overruns. We are already more than half-way there in pledges/donations. Read More HERE>>>
