Outside the Darlington Schoolhouse yesterday, our campaign team volunteers gathered to unveil the Bolger Challenge Thermometer! The new, eye-catching sign lets passersby know about the project and how much we still need to raise to reach our goal. Currently, the Trail Conference has raised $855,000 of the $1 million needed to meet Bolger Foundation’s Nov. 1, all-or-nothing challenge deadline. If we are successful, the Foundation will make a gift of $500,000, which will allow us start construction right away!
In attendance was reporter Allison Pries from the Bergen Record; check out her article, Fundraising deadline looms for Mahwah’s historic Darlington Schoolhouse.
