Draft Honor Roll: The Campaign to Change What It Means to Be Blind

Thank you to everyone who has made a pledge to our Capital Campaign thus far. We've already raised $4 million from almost 200 contributors. We encourage pledges to be paid over five years to enable contributors to make the strongest gift possible. What follows is a preliminary draft listing of Capital Campaign contributors for whom we have a signed pledge form (as of May 2, 2000). This list excludes contributors who have asked that their gifts not be published. If your name is not listed as you prefer or if you believe that your name has been omitted, please let us know. If you have made a pledge but have not yet signed and completed a pledge form, please do so as soon as possible. Our goal is 100% participation. Every pledge is important!
