Lake Erie Islands Nature & Wildlife Center has been fundraising to build an addition to the center. We have built the porch, and now need to move forward on the much needed library and expansion of the inside exhibit space. We have been offered an exciting challenge to raise funds for completing the second phase. A very generous anonymous donor has offered to match funds we raise in 2018 up to $60,000.00. With this in mind, we have been offered an exciting challenge by anonymous donors to raise funds for completing Phase 2. They have offered to match funds we raise in 2018 up to $60,000.00. Our staff and volunteers have been working to meet this challenge though soliciting local donations, fundraisers, grants, and other foundations so we can meet this challenge.
The cost of the building addition is estimated at $200,000.00. This year after the completion of the porch addition, $34,880.00 remained in our Building Fund. This year we have donations and pledges of $32,000.00 which will be matched by our Challenge Grant. We are continuing our efforts to raise the balance of $66.240.00.
Remember, every dollar you give is matched up to $60,000. Your donation is worth double the amount you send to us. Please complete the form on the top of this letter and return it with your donation. Thank you for your consideration of this direct appeal.
