Lighthouse is planning to build a new home and is undertaking a capital campaign to fund the new building that's been designed just for us. The building will be spacious, accessible and state-of-the-art, while evoking many of the things we loved about our house on Race Street.
As current and former Book Projecteers, we want to give back to Lighthouse, which has been an important part of our writing lives and craft. By raising $500,000, we can make this new home possible and dedicate a prominent feature of the new Lighthouse--a large, outdoor community plaza named for the Book Project featuring the names of all who join in the effort.
You can make a gift today, or make a multi-year pledge by contacting Development Director Jordyn Wolking at email@example.com. Pledges will count toward our goal, and pledging over time may make it possible for you to give even more generously than you can with a one-time gift.
To help us reach our goal, please consider giving a special recurring gift of $250, $500, $1,000 or even more over a three-year period--through this giving page, you can make your gift monthly, quarterly, or annually. Gifts or pledges totaling $5,000, $10,000 or $25,000 will be specially recognized. All one-time gifts and pledges of any amount help achieve our goal!
A few other things to keep in mind:
- Spread to word to friends and family! Their support can count toward our fundraising effort.
- There may be some great tax benefits for you if you fulfill your pledge with a gift of appreciated stock (we can tell you how to do that).
- If you itemize your tax deductions, you may want to give before December 31 to make the most of your charitable deductions.
- You may want to give a gift directly from an IRA if you're 70 1/2 years old to benefit from special tax savings.
