Fundraising Priorities Are Screwed Up In This Town!
In just a matter of weeks Montana State University set out to raise 8 million dollars for a stadium expansion that will increase the seating at the stadium by 2500 seats.Their goal was to raise it by the Cat/Griz game. They have raised 7.4 million of the money in less than 1 football season.
There are only a few days left to donate for the new stadium expansion, which has now reached over 90% of its fundraising goal.
Montana State will match donations up to $4 million, through a loan, which will be repaid through future athletics revenues. So far, including the match, the university has reached over $7.4 million of the necessary $8 million needed for the expansion. The deadline for turning in pledges is the Cat-Griz game, which takes place this weekend in Missoula.
Find out how to donate along with the latest numbers on the project by going to MSU's EZ campaign website. The first phase of the expansion will add approximately 2,500 new seats to the stadium around the south end zone and should be complete by the beginning of the 2011, 2012 season.
This according to the KBZK website...meanwhile Bozeman Deaconess Hospital has been trying to raise 5 million dollars to expand the Emergency Department and have not been able to raise what they needed in 2 years, and they are a Non-Profit. What is the matter Bozeman, put your money where it really matters, where it will do you the most good, and not in the pockets of a University system that has not filled the stadium they already have unless it was a Cat/Griz game. Maybe the Deaconess Foundation should have asked Waded to donate some of that $33,000 a month she makes.
