We are very, very excited to announce that we’ve reached the first goal in our ongoing Brick Campaign for the Huss Project: $50,000 by June 15! This means not only will we get to keep our building — the headquarters for our Three Rivers community development work — but we’ll also own the property outright without debt. This means that the other $50,000 we hope to raise by the end of the year can be used directly for building improvements that will move the Huss Project vision forward. Here’s what’s next:
- The Great Toilet Challenge! We’re audacious enough to think that we can raise another $2,000 by June 15 in order to get two bathrooms functional this summer. Can you pitch in?
- Our next campaign goal is to reach $58,000 by July 20, the date of this year’s Future Festival. This funding will be used for an initial consultation with an architect and will hopefully provide missing details that will be necessary for renovation. These are the kinds of details we’ll need to apply for grant funding.
- Meeting the Great Toilet Challenge will go a significant way toward meeting our last goal of the campaign. By the end of the year, we want to have at least one room in the school functional year-round — with heat and running water. With your help, we think we can do it!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to the over 165 donors who have contributed to this campaign so far. We are so grateful for your support and we look forward to moving forward together toward flourishing at the Huss Project, in Three Rivers and beyond!
