LANIGAN WATERPARK “FILL THE POOL”
We need your support to ‘FILL THE POOL’!
2019 has been a great year in our fundraising efforts to reach the revised ground break threshold of $850 000 set out by Town Council this summer. We had numerous corporate donations and personal donations along the way culminating in an exciting ‘Chase the Ace’ fundraiser which raised an astounding $135 000! This winter will be an important time to continue our push to reach and surpass the $850 000 and closer to our $2 million overall cost of the facility. In addition to the corporate donations we will be also focusing our efforts towards personal donations. Our goal is attain $600 000 towards the project from individuals. This seems like a large number but if we can break it down to $1000, $2000 or $3000 donations from families it is not nearly such an overwhelming number.
With this in mind the RM of Usborne has decided to do a Matching Contribution program for up to $10 000 raised by December 31st, 2019. As a ratepayer all you need to do is to contact the RM office in Guernsey with your donation plan and they will match donations on the first $10 000 committed. You will get a charitable donation receipt from the RM, and the Water Park Committee will be closer to reaching their fundraising goal. As with all donations to the project, everyone who donates $50 or more will be appropriately recognized on the legacy wall at the facility.
