Project Update                  Castellina Marittima, Tuscany                   November 15, 2018


Dear Friends:

We have very exciting news to share: with funds being matched by a generous donor we are only $60,250 away from reaching our fundraising goal for Phase One!
It is thrilling to be so close to reaching our fundraising target for purchasing the properties and to receiving permit approval from the Tuscan planning agencies. With your kind donations and the diligent efforts of our team in Italy we anticipate that we will be making a fantastic announcement before the end of the year.
Please come together to raise this final amount to make the vision for the Centre for Contemplative Research a reality.
Donations may be made online, by check or by bank transfer on the SBI website here .
Thank you to everyone who kindly responded to our earlier requests and donated funds.
We raised $1,118,500 of the $1,239,000 required for Phase 1.

´╗┐Outstanding Balance required is 120,500

With all donations being matched by an anonymous donor, 50% of this total, or only $60,250, is all we need!
