The CSPG Board of Directors is excited to announce that a wonderfully generous donor from our community has offered the Cataumet Schoolhouse a matching grant opportunity of $50,000. This extraordinary offer means that our historic Schoolhouse will continue to be as relevant today as it was over one hundred years ago! Our anonymous donor will match our donations on a rolling basis over the next five years, which will allow us maximum flexibility to raise the funds.
Our Fundraising Committee has focused on two areas that will make a difference for the Schoolhouse and its role in the community:
(1) Educational Needs: We will support the educational needs of our community such as teacher grants and student scholarships. This will be a new focus for us and we are eager to be part of what is happening in the 21st century with education in Bourne. We feel that this continues the original purpose of the Schoolhouse. We can’t imagine a more suitable goal!
(2) Preservation of the Schoolhouse: Our mission includes preserving the Schoolhouse for future generations. Upkeep and maintenance require funds for everything from new roofs, painting, landscaping, electrical work, and other necessities. Together, through this campaign, we can ensure that the Schoolhouse is preserved with excellent care for years to come.
You can make a difference for our teachers and students and preserve our beloved Schoolhouse as we all navigate these challenging times. We hope you are excited as we are to support the Schoolhouse’s legacy in such an unprecedented way.
Remember that for every dollar you give, we receive matching funds from our generous donor.
As you know, the Cataumet Schoolhouse has been placed on the National Register for Historic Places. We are proud of all the efforts so many people have made to accomplish that goal. Now it is time to bring our 19th century Schoolhouse into the 21st century for the benefit of our community.
On behalf of the CSPG Board of Directors, thank you in advance for your consideration. We hope to receive your support. Please feel free to reach out with any questions to: email@example.com.
