The efforts of our Building Community Campaign to reach our $3 million goal included personal visits and calls to all board and campaign committee members as well as Evergreen’s ELT staff leadership team during the last quarter of 2013. With only half of all members of these groups having made their gifts or pledges, we have already reached from them a cumulative amount of $529,972 that includes cash, pledges and planned estate gifts. In addition, with the same kinds of gifts from others, our current total of $1,309,735 is cause for great satisfaction and joy.
Aggressive plans for 2014 are already in motion. From January to September the Evergreen Executive Team and 17 trained volunteers will make personal and telephone visits with residents, family members and close friends. Working as pair partners, they will share our Evergreen vision and offer the opportunity for current donors, lapsed donors and even non-donors to support our campaign. During these months, all Evergreen employees, volunteers and resident groups will be encouraged to creatively participate in the campaign efforts that will culminate with an October event for all members of the Evergreen community.
In June we will host an informative gathering for the Oshkosh community. During the last quarter of 2014 we will visit Oshkosh community members with whom we will share our vision and encourage financial support.
We pray that all these efforts will reach our $3 million goal!
