The most successful phase of the Capital Campaign so far involved matching investment challenges. Remember back at the end of July when two generous supporters issued challenges? One member-owner who had already invested $10,000 pledged to invest a second $10,000 if someone else stepped up and invested at the same level. Our member-owners came through and made that happen. Another supporter said that if we were able to hit the $300,000 mark by August 1, they would invest an additional $50,000. That happened. We’ve seen our member-owners rise to the challenges and meet the goals and we thank you.

We know our 900+ member-owners are a creative group! We ask that you please consider issuing similar matching investment challenges to other member-owners, or groups of member-owners (employers, neighborhoods, professional groups, softball teams, etc.). Some friendly competition could be just what our Campaign needs to meet our overall goal of $875,000.
