The Capital Campaign: A Year-Two Progress Report

At our 2016 reunion in New York, we announced the launch of our first-ever capital campaign. We set an audacious goal: to raise $500,000 in five years, so that we could build an endowment to fund four full-summer scholarships to Winnebago in perpetuity.

That night, our president, Jim Astrove, kicked off the campaign with a personal pledge of $50,000. His enthusiasm and generosity spread quickly, and Winnebagans of all generations responded to the call. We now have just under $100,000 in our endowment fund, with another $30,000 pledged.

That total puts us around one-quarter of our goal, which means that we are lagging behind our five-year target. To get back on track, we need another $70,000 in pledges and donations before our reunion next April.

While these numbers may seem large, every dollar pledged is meaningful. This is truly a group effort. As one example, $25,000 of our endowment represents the collective donations of the amazing 1981 Senior Lodge.Nine members of that lodge have contributed so far, with more surely to come.

The capital campaign represents a major evolution for the WAA. For years, we consistently ran a deficit and had annual discussions about the viability of our scholarship program. Now, the endowment fund will give us stability and the knowledge that we’ll never have to stop sponsoring scholarship boys.

But even more than that, the capital campaign is a sign that the WAA and the scholarship program are integral, undying parts of the Winnebago family. “In perpetuity” is not just a turn of phrase—the money given now will be a permanent gift whose interest and dividends will keep making sure that camp is a diverse, inclusive community for every generation to come.

Making a gift to the scholarship-fund endowment is as simple as writing “Capital Campaign” on the memo line of your check or in the comments section of your online donation. Please feel free to contact our treasurer, Ethan Ris, at ethan.ris@gmail.com for more details about the campaign.

english cam girls You can spend all day searching for live cams, or you can enjoy them. They come in any age and type: young and mature, curvy and thin, blondes and redhead. Your time would be best spent enjoying them. You can even get dirty with these girls. This is the closest thing to online sex that you’ll ever enjoy. There’s no need for you to look any further for a sexy girl to chat it up with. Not when this site is loaded with more than you’ll ever be able to talk to.

Arab sex video The Way to Find a Fantastic Muslim Pornography Websit... Not just, although it has Arab sex! The domain sexjk.com should make you believe this is the sole kind of entertainment you will get, but it would appear that it's (more or less) a normal tube. It's rare! Rare to be able to find great porn that is Arab . Even better, it's pretty rare to discover a nice site with a layout which will allow you to navigate between the pages easily and without issues. It's an site which has arab content. If all of their videos are with chicks doing things, I am not really certain, but a big part of these for certain are. The homepage of SexJK.com will give you the updates and I've observed many babes with big titties! Natural, like those which you see on women, found on the street! I like them organic, as long as they are big! Who the fuck likes tits?
