We see every child in San Juan County graduating from high school knowing how to swim. We see every family enjoying the opportunity to grow strong together in spirit, mind and body. We see every senior having local access to low-impact exercise and aqua therapy. We see a healthy community with an improved quality of life.
PROJECT BUDGET: $ 5 MILLION
THE GOAL (IN 2 PHASES):
PHASE 1: To swim in the lap pool and use the warm-water therapy pool during summer – $3.8 million.
PHASE 2: To enclose both pools, making them accessible year-round – an additional $1.2 million.
Beginning with a $500,000 Challenge Gift from Vanguard Charitable (Schmidt-Barton Family Fund), all donations received since the launch of the Capital Campaign on July 4th have been applied to meet this challenge. Additionally, FLIP is awaiting on an award for a WA State Youth Recreational Facilities grant, pending the passing of the State budget. So far, we have raised $ 1.7 MILLION, including $510,000 for the Operating & Maintenance Reserve Fund. Your board continues to apply for grant funding and to seek government assistance to open this public swimming pool in our rural community for the benefit of all county residents and visitors.
We need leadership gifts to make an immediate difference, and we need our broad base of annual supporters to continue to support the Capital Campaign for the next two years. Many have already pledged from $1,000 to $25,000 in multiple payments over time to help reach our goal. Our generous annual supporters number almost 800 and continue to send gifts of $100 to $500 at intervals within their comfort level. Every gift is important and goes to work, and together those gifts keep us moving toward THE GOAL.
