Join us in the effort to build an accessible space in which to inspire peace.
We are excited to announce that we are participating in a crowd-sourced fundraising program through MightyCause.com. This platform not only offers a safe and secure website for making donations, but they have also partnered with the Gannett Foundation to offer assist groups like ours the opportunity to apply for additional funding through A Community Thrives.
The crowd-sourced funding portion of the program began on Monday September 21st and continues until Friday October 16th at 11 AM (Central Time). Our goal during this 4-week program is to raise $1000 per week. If we meet that goal, we qualify for consideration for a Local Operating Grant from Gannett. In our application, we asked for $48,336 - the amount we will need to complete the next phase of our plan for the park.
Please check out our page at MightyCause.com for full details of our plan and for the opportunity to make a donation.
