HOME OF THE BRAVES CROSSES THE FINISH LINE THANKS TO YOU!
The Indian Hill Foundation is thrilled to announce that it has reached its fundraising goal of $4.25 million dollars to build the new Home of the Braves, a mutli-use athletic facility and welcome plaza! The public announcement will be made at approximately 6:55pm, just prior to the football game this Friday evening, September 6th. We encourage all donors to come to the game and be recognized during the announcement with a round of applause for your support of the Home of the Braves.
The Indian Hill School District and the Indian Hill Foundation would like to thank Mr. Peter Klekamp, and Mr. Craig Sumerel who generously agreed to co-chair the fundraising endeavor. Mr. Klekamp and Mr. Sumerel quickly assembled a volunteer cabinet dedicated to taking on a task never before attempted in Indian Hill – raising community funds for a school project. This committee of zealous and committed volunteers, led by Mr. Klekamp and Mr. Sumerel, reached out to current parents, alumni, and community members championing the benefits the new facility would bring to both students and the community. Over 300 families and business contributed to this project ranging from leadership gifts to the purchase of small pavers. Additionally, this campaign generated the largest gift ever to the Indian Hill Foundation – a transformative matching grant of $500,000.
Your support will create opportunities for students in the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District for years to come, as well as create a new community gathering space for celebrations and events. The new Home of the Braves is the direct result of the bold philanthropic support by our community for our community. Thank you!
