Forbes Hall Expansion & Upgrade: Fundraising & Goal Setting

We are thrilled to announce that we have been successful in being awarded a $250,000.00 BC Community Gaming Grant through the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

As many of you may know, grants have always been (and will continue to be) included in our “amount raised” total. Including the two grants we have been awarded, with the donations locally fundraised, we now qualify to receive the full $200,000.00 matching donation from an anonymous donor. Achieving this goal has been the main focus of our local fundraising for 2018.

With the Rural Dividend Grant ($10,000), the BC Community Gaming Grant ($250,000.00), our local fundraising events, merchandise sales, and donations, we have now surpassed our initial 2018 fundraising goal of $930,000.00 ~ well done!

The total of funds we have raised to date: $1,120,064.00 

While working on the BC Community Gaming Grant application this past summer, we were required to develop a budget for the total project. This revision more accurately reflects the anticipated costs of a new build, and the total project costs. As a result, the current fundraising goal is $1,250.000. All expenditures to date have been included in the working budget.

When we go to tender, an even more accurate target will be determined, and the fundraising goal will be adjusted once more. We plan on the project going out for tender in January/February 2019. 

We thank you all for your amazing generosity, and participation.
