SPECIAL CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCEMENT
Our Capital Campaign received a big boost last night as we announced the launch of the public phase of the campaign and also had a special announcement by Ellen Kullman, CEO of DuPont Company and chairman of our campaign.
Ms. Kullman announced that DuPont will be contributing $1 million to the campaign. This means that our total dollars raised to date is $6.4 million of our $10 million goal. Ms. Kullman in her remarks stressed the importance of the work done by the clubs and the impact the organization has on the lives of youth. She indicated that companies like DuPont will need skilled employees who are prepared to work in careers that are STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) related.
Over 100 people were in attendance. Tours of the work now completed at the H. Fletcher Brown Boys & Girls Club, as a result of the campaign, were offered to all, including the new "ACHIEVER’S CENTER” mentoring and technology center.
As we move now into the next phase of the campaign, we will be increasing the amount of promotion in order to generate greater awareness and broader community support. We welcome any ideas, as well as opportunities to promote the campaign at events, newsletters or other vehicles you may be aware of.
While we still have a ways to go to achieve our campaign goal we are well underway. Thanks to all who have helped us get this far. We are changing the lives of thousands of kids and your help and support is making a difference!
