In 2009, *culture is not optional raised $25,000 in forty days to purchase the historic Huss School property in Three Rivers, Michigan. To take the Huss Project into the future, our next goal is to raise $50,000 by June 15, 2013 and $100,000 by December 31, 2013. The Brick Campaign offers a structure to help us meet our goal of raising $100,000: we seek to sell 1,000 “bricks” for $100 each.
Gifts from the campaign will be designated as follows:
The overarching goal for how the campaign money will be spent is to build capacity. Paying off the mortgage frees up approximately $500 per month for infrastructure and programming. An architectural analysis allows us to pursue grants. Creating a usable space increases our capacity for programming and rental income.
