PHASE 2

FUNDING

$70,000 total funding needed
We have raised $20,000 in funding already. Thanks to the Bailey Endowment, we have received a $15,000 grant. Meaning, we are half-way to our goal and have only $35,000 left to raise. A mailable donation form is available,  click here to download the form.
