Giving is as easy as ABC…or is it BGZ?July 28, 2009
Being a librarian, I’m naturally an ABC kinda gal. I like alphabetic order. I like order in general. Much of life follows a certain order. A capital campagin certainly does. First you do your homework. Then you talk with potential major donors. Then you turn things over to the community and hope the citizens will respond by giving.
We turned the page on our capital campaign last week, kicking off the public phase of our Foster Growth campaign. We had great media coverage at the event. Thank you to James Debilzen of the Daily Jefferson County Union (click on the link to read about it) and Michael Clish of WFAW. We appreciate the story by Barry Adams in the Wisconsin State Journal too.
So now it’s your turn. We sincerely (and gratefully) hope you will consider helping Foster Growth in Fort Atkinson. We’ve been working on ways to make giving as easy as ABC. Our brochure has a super easy tear-off panel. Just fill out the form on the back and either attach a check or pledge an amount for future giving. (We accept pledges over a three year period.) The brochure (please note: this link takes you to the PDF of the brochure but it does take quite awhile to download) is available on the web site and, of course, inside the library. Soon we’ll be taking the brochures out into the community and mailing them as well.
You may also donate using your credit card. Simply go to our library’s web site and click on the Building Project tab. Click the donate button and you will be taken to the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation’s web site to make your donation to the library fund.
If you’d like to learn more about our project, the plans and the renderings are now on our website. You can click on the thumbnail images to see each of them enlarged. If you would like to see the plans in a really large print format, they are available to view in the library. Come in and see! Please remember, though, that the plans are not yet finalized so they are still subject to change.
Giving really is as easy as ABC…or, if you look at the image below, you could say it fits neatly under BGZ. Gee, the alphabet is a versatile and wonderful thing!
