Such a sum is well above and beyond the resources of annual Outward Bound operational income and the resources of the Foundation.
We are therefore launching a special concerted campaign - Project Refresh Anakiwa, to raise this sum of money and oversee the project right through to completion. The project has a tight, and to a certain extent urgent, timeframe of three years. It is admittedly an ambitious stretch project but isn't that what the message of Outward Bound is all about?
We have some great news to kick start Project Refresh Anakiwa.
I am delighted to be able to tell you that Andrew and Jenny Smith have made a hugely generous donation of $1,500,000 to start the project off! In terms that those of us who have been to Outward Bound understand only too clearly, we are now already half way up the hill in front of us without even getting a sweat up!
But it is still a substantial climb ahead and the need to sweat and to climb right to the very $3,000,000 top is important if not vital. Therefore I am appealing to you directly as Chair of Project Refresh Anakiwa to come to the party to help Outward Bound in a time of exciting development but also genuine need. Together we can future proof the magic of Anakiwa for generations to come.
Will you join me and pledge your financial support of Project Refresh Anakiwa so that together we can continue to change lives through Outward Bound?
With sincere thanks for your consideration,
Chair – Project Refresh Anakiwa
