Exciting Building Pride Challenge Opportunity 
The Building Pride Campaign has been presented with an incredible challenge. A matching funds challenge has been issued to double up to $250,000 from community pledges and gifts made by February 1, 2017. You read that right! Several contributors have come together to MATCH up to $250,000 towards the District Activity Complexes if the general public will raise that much. That gives us the opportunity to have $500,000 more in the fund. Remember, at the Building Pride press conference, it was announced that we have $2.5 million toward the $4.9 million needed, so we are over halfway there in just 100 days of the campaign.
 
Checks may be sent to the Liberty School District Foundation, Attention: Building Pride Campaign, 8 Victory Lane, Liberty, MO 64068. Donations of $100 and more may be made online by going to lsdf.org.  Also, contributions may be scheduled over a two-year period to make giving easier.  PLEASE, let's act now and come together to meet this challenge. It's also a chance to get an end-of-the-year tax deduction. Be sure to let your companies know, if you work for a company that has matching donation programs.
