Fundraising Update: May 6, 2014

May 6, 2014 – A complete review of building fund contributions and donors produced some interesting results. Total contributions were $2,153,017.02. Total donors were 530. The interesting part is the veteran related ratio to the whole. Veteran, veteran family or veteran organization donors were 311 or 58.7 % of all donors. Even more interesting is that the same ones contributed $1,542,524.00 or 71.6% of the contributions.

Another item of interest is the number of donations under $1,000. They represent 68.7% of all contributions. That indicates a high interest level, or as one observer said, "That’s grass roots!"

In Closing...

The WAVP Veterans Center honors the Veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It recognizes and celebrates the sacrifice of those who served in past conflicts, those who serve today, and those whose service awaits them. These men and women and their families are ever mindful of the reality that freedom is not free. It is in this spirit that we build this very special home "Where Patriots Gather"
