Donation Challenge Could Help Boost Funds for Animal Foundation of Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

With the exterior of the Margaret J. Maclean Center finished, it's just a matter of raising the money to finish the interior and last minute touches.  Their goal is to raise one million dollars before January first.  This will enable them to secure a loan from the bank in order to move forward.  From there, the Animal Foundation of Great Falls is hopeful to open doors six months later.

In order to do all this the foundation greatly needs the support of community members.  Pam Volk, Development Director, explains a community member has offered a $30,000 match challenge. If they raise $30,000 in donations by September 1st, then the community member will match that bringing them to $60,000 closer to their goal of one million by the end of this year.

After the one million is raised, another $1.5 million will need to be raised in order to pay off their bank loan.
