We’re trying to raise $10,000 for the P-Patch by the end of the month!
Many thanks to this week’s donors – we now have $1780 in cash and pledges and checks are coming daily – you are the best! The deadline to raise $10K is next week so keep those checks coming – we can do this!
FMMP is on track to have a P-Patch at Magnolia Manor Park by the end of 2012. We’ve received a $20K Small & Simple grant from the Department of Neighborhoods Matching Fund Program. We will match that with $10K in cash and $10K in volunteer hours. Add in $60K from the Parks Levy and we have (just) enough money to move the SPU security fences and build 30 P-Patch plots. We hope to expand that to 90+ plots with additional funding.
So we’re trying to raise $10,000 for the P-Patch by the end of the month!
It must seem like nothing is going on, and it is quite the OPPOSITE! SO many things are going on behind the scenes that it’s hard to keep track. The P-Patch Committee is busy working on meeting immediate fundraising needs to build the fence (more to come in an additional post), forming planning committees and getting organized, while the Off-Leash Area is getting ready to announce the date for the groundbreaking ceremony!
Today we met with our webmaster and learned some functionality if the website and discussed what we’d like to see and how we’d like to use it. We will be having more people with access to post relevant information such as upcoming events, meeting dates/times, reports on what was discussed at meetings (for those who can’t make it) and more.
See ya soon!
