Capital Campaign Update – February 1, 2018
Hello NOVA Families!
We had a great turnout last Sunday at our first 2018 Information Social. Thanks to those who attended to hear more about the expansion plan – the group discussion and question and answer period was helpful for all. We are grateful for the wonderful hospitality of Hillary and Brett Hawkins and also thank Jill and Mark Webb for co-hosting. Did you miss the event? Don’t worry, there are four more socials scheduled. To see all the options for dates and times, and to RSVP, click here. Please note, you can attend any party that works with your schedule. Refreshments and hors-d’oeuvres included!
We want to thank everyone who has made a gift to the capital campaign. The original fundraising effort raised over $1.7 million in pledges; since November, NOVA parents have pledged over $150,000 more towards the $800,000 needed. You can find a list of all the donors to date on the NOVA website. If you feel any error has been made, we apologize; please contact email@example.com to advise of any changes.
Families that pledge in 2017/2018 have up to three years to fulfill their commitments. Please fill out a pledge card so that we know what funds can be expected. Keep in mind that you can make monthly or quarterly credit card payments to fulfill your pledge. All pledges are valuable to the project, and we ask families to give what they can. As Geoff has mentioned, 100% of families participated in the original capital campaign when the first NOVA pool was built!
NOVA swimmers are swarming in to the business office to deliver Body Armor bottles filled with silver coins – what a bonanza, 100 bottles have been turned in so far! At this rate, our kids will make a $10,000 contribution to the capital campaign. Many swimmers have mentioned that they are excited about the 50-meter pool and want to do their part. We are building the pool for them, and it is so great to feel their enthusiasm. Remember, February 23rd is the deadline to return bottles in exchange for one of those 250 limited-edition caps.
Thanks, as always, for your continued support of NOVA.
Ann McGee, NOVA Executive Director
