Phase I Is Complete and Phase II Is Underway!
Phase I of The Spirit Center has been created, implemented, and completed which included the feasibility study, architectural designs, engineering, planning, and other items. The lead gift of $1M was secured and the Capital Campaign was placed in motion. The total amount raised in Phase I is $2,623,620 from 275 donors. Phase II is our current focus which includes raising the remaining $2.3M to include securing a $1M lead gift, writing the closing campaign grants, implementing a robust Capital Campaign structure, and building the two Dormitories and Dining/Activity Center.
