Fundraising Campaign Description:
With our expansion to Ghana and the continued success of our programs in the region, we saw the need to develop a campus that could accommodate our growth and provide more space for brigader and community interaction. On a strategically selected 4.5 acre site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the community of Ankeful, Ghana, we are set to break ground this December on a cost sensitive and eco-friendly 27,000 square foot structure. Tentatively named the \\\"Campus for Holistic Development,\\\" it will be the largest structure ever built by Global Brigades and will serve as a dynamic space to not only house 166 volunteers and 44 staff members, but will also contain office space for Ghana team members, a pharmacy, a cafeteria, and workshop and training spaces for community members.
To make this campus possible, we’re asking for the help from brigaders, chapters and GB supporters to help us raise the funds for the construction of this campus. Ultimately, this campus will allow us to host more volunteers and deepen the impact of our work in Ghana. The savings of Global Brigades building and using its own accommodations instead of paying providers will pay itself back in 2-3 years.
We are asking each GB chapter to raise $1,000 toward the GB Ghana Campus and in turn each chapter will have its chapter name engraved in a stone paver that will be used to finish various outdoor spaces. If all 393 chapters do their part in fundraising for the campus, we can get the entire campus funded! For individuals, families, chapters, or even businesses that would like to raise more than $1,000, we have listed fundraising levels below that allow fundraisers to name entire dormitories, breakout rooms, etc. to be named if those goals are reached. For someone or some organization, willing to contribute $200,000, we will name the entire project as the (Donor name) Campus for Holistic Development. Other than the patio stone paver naming, each of the bigger fundraising levels below also represent the approximate costs to build that type of room.
