Who wants to be > Less Than? WE DO.
At the end of 2021, North Yarmouth Historical sent out a challenge to the community: to match a $50,000 pledge to the Old Town House Capital Campaign. Could we? Did we??
We’ve done the math:
We did it! We now have LESS THAN $100,000 to go!
$96,177, to be Exact.
Since we started our campaign a year ago, we have raised $653,823 in cash and commitments. We’re thrilled by this success. And so grateful to all who have contributed!
We still have < MORE to go, but we’re confident that our fundraising team is = EQUAL to the task.
We’ve also been keeping tabs on the number of contributors to this project, and so far we’re received 150 donations from resident families; 44 from “away”—including donors from neighboring towns, many with North Yarmouth roots; 5 from grant-giving organizations; and 5 in-kind donations from our local contractors. It’s really ++ adding up.
And as 2022 commences and Old Town House’s restoration continues, we’ve got an = equally important challenge: to enlist a < greater % percentage of our friends in supporting local history. We can’t __ underscore how important history is to creating and maintaining a sense of community connectedness.
If we could reach out in person beyond the computer screen and through the invisible Internet, we’d be giving a big pat on the back and a hearty thank you to each and every one!
Raising those final dollars will be challenging. We invite you donate—shrink that pesky >, and help ^^ boost our ##s.
$750K = $ucc$$, no > less!
