Please join Lighthouse in building a new home for the literary arts, including a Book Project Community Plaza!
raised by 46 people
Lighthouse is almost done building their 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 up to $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.
And right now, your gift will have DOUBLE the impact. A few generous BP alums and their family came together to match every donation starting in March 2023, up to $40,000!
You can make a gift today, or make a multi-year pledge by contacting Development Manager Jonna Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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.
