Do you want to be a part of something great? We are looking for passionate local people to help fund and implement a meaningful project in Defiance County.
What type of project? You get to decide.
The Defiance Area Foundation (DAF) has created Project 2030 to raise enough money in 10 years to build something we could only dream about today. Maybe it’s an ice skating rink, amphitheater, or indoor playground? If we raise $200,000, we could build something REALLY cool.
Down the road, we will ask our community to submit project ideas, and then eligible donors can vote on the final project.
How to participate:
To be eligible to vote on the project, you can donate voting shares. Shares are $25 each and once you have 12 shares you are able to vote on the final project!
Levels of participation:
1. Project 2030 Partner: Donate 1 share ($25) a month for 10 years or $3,000.
The minimum commitment to be a Partner is a 60 share or $1,500 commitment over the 10 years to be eligible to be a part of a Project 2030 Committee or Officer position.
2. Project 2030 Affiliate: Donate at least 12 shares total to be considered an Affiliate and become eligible to vote on the final project.
This is at least $300 and can be paid $25 a month for 1 year or at any increment that works for the donor over the 10 years. Sign up for Paypal automatic deductions for easy payment!
Shares can be paid monthly, quarterly, or annually online or by check.
The more shares you donate, the more your vote counts.
There is no penalty for not being able to reach your goal.
Shares are capped at 120 or $3,000 per person.
There is no family cap. Multiple members of a family can donate to the max.
Gifts over $3,000 per person are welcome, but shares would remain the same.
Gifts at $10,000 or above are considered Visionary status and Visionaries will be capped at the max shares for voting. They will be recognized on all Project 2030 communications and the DAF website for their contribution.
