We were discussing this shortfall with one of our major donors who is also a member of our National Advisory Board. He told us that we should “go big, or go home.” He encouraged us to raise an additional $8 to 10 million so we create the space we need for our students. So, we have decided to try to do just that.
Does this mean that the construction of the building will be delayed while we come up with this additional cash? No. Our plan is to raise the extra money in the next six to seven months so that we’ll be able to stay on our original schedule.
Next week I’ll write about how we plan to do that but, in the meantime, those of you who might have $8 to 10 million available that you’d like to invest in our students, we invite you to step forward. The way we see it, this is truly the time to “Go big, or go home” and we need your help to do that.
