Construction is starting! Thanks to our community's support, and the campaign cabinet's tireless efforts, the School Board voted to begin construction on the new Home of the Braves! Join us for the groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, April 29th 5:00 to 5:45pm at the Booster Pavilion near the High School. The event is rain or shine. All are welcome.
LARGEST GIFT EVER GIVEN TO IH FOUNDATION!
An anonymous donor has stepped forward with an unprecedented and generous commitment to help the Home of the Braves campaign cross the finish line! The donor has committed to match the donations made to the campaign up to $500,000. This matching gift opportunity will help ensure that the entire design vision is realized. So, NOW is the time to donate and DOUBLE YOUR DONATION! But do not wait. The groundbreaking is April 29th!
There are many ways to support the campaign and recognize your family's legacy.
1. Donor Wall - join our leadership level donors giving $5,000 or more with a plaque on the Home of the Braves donor wall that will be located in the new Braves Welcome Plaza.
2. Pavers - Make your mark by purchasing a customizable engraved paver for your family, friends, teammates or classmates. The possibilities are endless! Pavers are available in 3 sizes for gifts ranging from $250 to $4,999. Supplies are limited.
3. Every Dollar Counts! - Provide support at any level and help us "max the match!" Every gift will make a tremendous impact for our students.
The Home of the Braves will be the centerpiece of the athletic complex. It consists of two parts. The first is a two-story, multi-use building with sorely needed features, such as upgraded team locker rooms at field level, conveniently located upper-field restrooms and a large concessions area. This new building will serve multiple sports teams including lacrosse, football, track, cross-country, baseball, softball, as well as, provide designated space for coaches, officials and trainers.
The second feature of the Home of the Braves is the Welcome Plaza. The Welcome Plaza will be a large, circular outdoor area perfect for District events and celebrations. It will create a gathering space open to the community to be enjoyed by all, as well as, tie together the entire athletic facility from the upper-fields all the way down to Tomahawk Stadium.
We are thrilled to share that over $3.5 million has already been raised. But, we need your help to cross the finish line. Please join us in supporting this visionary project and double your donation today! Your support represents not only a donation to the campaign, but also an investment in the future of our children, school district, and community.
