Alternative Funding through Private Fundraising & Grants at MWGS presentation to VSBA, Williamsburg, VA, 2011
In collaboration with Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School, BCWH presented a case study to the Virginia School Board Association that evaluated the success of private funding for the addition of an athletic pavillion to MWGS. The analysis detailed the original goals of the project and its necessity and the plans for the project. From the beginning it was evident to see that raising funds for the project were of paramount importance in order for the vision to be sought out. It became clear that in order for this project to completed private funding through a grassroots approach was the best way to go. Through aggressive fundraising, timing, generous donors , and help from existing groups the project was funded by January 2011 and construction started in June of 2011. Through this case study we were able to understand that cooperation between donors, project leads, and the school were key in making this project happen.
