11.     I'm a Leadership Giver at the $7,000+ (Founders' Circle) level. Am I able to purchase a replica brick with the acrylic 

          case?

Yes, Founders' Circle donors may purchase a replica brick with acrylic case for $100.  Please click here.  

12.     I plan to give at the $7,000 (Founders' Circle) level but I have not completed my pledge.  Will I receive a

          complimentary brick?

Donors who have made a pledge of $7,000+ via Network For Good AND have donated at least $1,500 as of 12/31/2021 will have a complimentary brick reserved as a Leadership Giving benefit, if they so choose, at no additional cost.  Donors who do not successfully complete their $7,000 donation by 3/31/2022 will have the cost of the brick subtracted from their donation amount.  The donation amount less the cost of the brick will be the basis for determining the donor’s Leadership Giving level and benefits.

 

Example:

  • Person A makes a $7,000 pledge via Network For Good

  • As of 12/31/2021, Person A has donated a total of $1,500.  Person A accepts the monument brick as Leadership Giving benefit.

  • As of 3/31/2022, Person A has donated a total of $5,000

  • Since Person A did not complete the $7,000 donation, the cost of the brick is subtracted from the actual donation amount as of 3/31/2022 to determine Person A’s Leadership Giving level and benefits.

 

(Total donation – brick cost = donation amount used to determine Leadership Giving level)

($5,000 - $322 = $4,678)

 

  • Final giving level is $4,678 = Centennial Supporter / Silver ($2,200 - $4,999)

13.     I am a Leadership Giver.  Can I deduct the cost of the brick from my donation?

No.  Bricks must be purchased via the link above.  As a reminder, donors will earn the level of benefits that align to their total leadership giving as of 3/31/22.

14.     Who can I contact if I have additional questions about the monument and/or brick purchases
