Campaign Update

The Jacob's Well project didn't make the cut for Snohomish County funding. There were over $6 million in requests competing for about $350,000. Even with this decision, we are still very optimistic. The Kresge Foundation will allow us to increase our request to them to $450,000 and we had a conversation with the Murdock Trust today which was also optimistic. Our Murdock request for $400,000 will be decided in August and Kresge in October prior to our fall kick off November 10! Please SAVE THE DATE! (see below) So of the $4.4 million needed for the project, we have raised just over $2 million. Positive decisions from Murdock and Kresge will put us well on our way. Both of these grants are challenge grants meaning we would need to raise the other amounts needed prior to them releasing their dollars. Click here for more information about this project.
