We did cross the finish line – together, on April 25, at Breakfast at the Green — this generous community came through again, and the energy in the room was electrifying! Together, we met and exceeded the $20,000 community match, raising $46,000 at the breakfast.
We ended the capital campaign fundraising with a small cushion. In other words, if all of the pledges currently on the books are collected, we will have sufficient funds to retire all remaining indebtedness.
The Village Green Foundation, which raised the money to construct the Village Green Community Center, still has much work to do. There are donors to thank, pledges to collect, that debt to be retired, and that wonderful summertime event Pie in the Park to plan! you may remember that the Foundation made a commitment to strengthen adult and senior programs, and will be honoring that commitment.
As stated in our May newsletter, know that if you are moved to donate to the Village Green Foundation, your gifts will be gratefully received, acknowledged, and carefully stewarded.
August 16 is 2018 Pie in the Park Day. (Save that date!) Go to www.kingstonvillagegreen.org for more on the capital campaign, and remember: You can still buy paving bricks ones for $100 or $200. Here’s the form:
