- RENEWED BUILDING FUND RESULTS SHOW POSITIVE MEMBERSHIP BACKING!
Plan to build Archives Building at Illinois Railway Museum generates strong support.
Omaha, July 17, 2016
Since we renewed our Archives Building Fund Drive at the Minneapolis Meet and with 2016’s second issue of North Western Lines, our members are responding in a most generous manner! We are receiving strong support – both from meet attendees and from the fund raising article in NWL.
Archives Building Fund Director Tim Coyle reports that at the Minneapolis Meet on May 13th through May 15th, just over $10,000 in donations and pledges were received from 9 individuals! Contributions as of June 30th are as follows:
Donations: $ 19,403
Pledges: $ 11,283
Total: $ 30,686 from 45 Donors.
Amount in Building Fund prior to May 13th: $ 53,442
Grand Total in Building Fund as of June 30, 2016: $ 84,128
I want to personally thank all who have donated or pledged. In addition, I encourage all members to consider supporting the archives building fund. This is a worthwhile project, and by working together it is well within our organization’s grasp!
