We have met and surpassed our June 30 target of $100,000 for Kus-kus-sum! To date we have raised over $400,000 from our community fundraising initiatives. We now have just under $100,000 to raise to reach our overall goal of $500,000. To facilitate the raising of this last $100,000, we are creating smaller targets over shorter time frames. Our next target will be $35,000 by October 20th in preparation for our next payment to Interfor on October 31st. Our targets after that will be the end of December this year and mid June 2020.
We are proud of our community and all donations and volunteer time everyone has put in to make this a success so far. We are almost at our goal and look forward to being able to start the restoration process in 2020. Thank you for helping us keep it living at Kus-kus-sum!
