Building More Room for Compassion
Beginning with the economic recession in 2008, we experienced an extraordinary increase in demand for all our services. While program expenditures tripled, we continued to operate out of cramped facilities. During 2011, our Board of Directors began exploring ways to consolidate space and ensure efficient, cost-effective delivery of services to meet the growing needs of the community.
In 2012, our Board started the “quiet phase” of the capital campaign and purchased an existing building at 1303 Jasmine Street in Fernandina Beach, one block away from our New to You resale store. In early 2013, the campaign was launched officially at our annual meeting, with an initial goal of $1.25 million.
“From the beginning, the ‘Building More Room for Compassion’ campaign was about two things: raising funds to renovate a building and building more goodwill and friends in the community. Thanks to the generosity of many people, we succeeded on both counts.”
— Barnabas Board Member
The Story of Our Capital Campaign
The first challenge in any campaign is a lead gift to get the campaign off to a strong start. By the time of our January 2013 Annual Meeting, the Lucy Gooding Charitable Foundation Trust had stepped up with a gift to the building campaign of $300,000. The Gooding Trust was no stranger to Barnabas, having provided much needed operating funds in the past.
This generous lead gift inspired several other very bighearted gifts from the Roddy Holden Family Foundation, the Riverside Hospital Foundation, and a local family who had a long history of supporting our mission. California Pizza Kitchen and another local company donated equipment for the expansion of our food pantry, allowing for increased capacity to store and distribute fresh and frozen, as well as items need to equip a teaching kitchen.
Our next challenge was to take our story to a wider range of potential donors. A giant leap forward came when the Weaver Family Foundation offered us a $100,000 dollar-for-dollar match for gifts $5,000 and under. Delores Weaver particularly wanted us to not only grow our base of supporters, but to ensure that each donor, regardless of the size of the gift, knew his or her gift made a difference.
We completed this challenge in 11 weeks, and 100 of the 165 gifts in the challenge were first time donors. The smallest gift was $4, the average was $584, and 81% of donors made gifts less than $1,000. Delores Weaver took note of this broad-based support and followed the first challenge grant with another $250,000 dollar-for-dollar match from the Delores Barr Weaver Fund. The challenge funds were to go to the capital campaign, but Mrs. Weaver’s match established an endowment for ongoing maintenance of the building.
We then embarked on a series of coffees, evening receptions, and similar gatherings throughout Nassau County to tell the story of our campaign. Gifts continued to pour in, both small and large.
