Building Pride Campaign Successful, Liberty Announces Naming Rights for Athletic Complexes

To say there was a lot of excitement in the Board Room at the LPS District Administration Center on Monday afternoon, December 12, 2016, would be an understatement.

Flanked by a few dozen large poster boards covered with black draping, Building Pride Co-Chair Shane Davolt introduced the business and corporate sponsorship donors who have stepped forward to support the district’s activity complexes private fundraising campaign, which officially launched September 1, 2016. After the sponsorship boards were unveiled to the packed room one by one, Davolt announced the exciting news that approximately $2.5 million had been committed in just the first 100 days of the campaign.

“The interest and support for these activity complexes has been nothing short of incredible,” Davolt said. “This is a massive undertaking and takes you, me, and our entire Liberty community to make it happen.”

Davolt noted that the campaign is operating in two phases, with the first 100 days focused heavily on finding business and corporate sponsorships for naming rights at each of the complexes at respective high schools. The press conference on Monday served somewhat as an official pivot toward the charitable giving/donor portion of the campaign. Several dozen individuals have already donated to the campaign, as their names were displayed on separate display boards on Monday. Davolt noted several giving options are now available and may be done so by visiting the Liberty School District Foundation website and simply clicking the Building Pride logo.

“Potential donors are provided several giving options ranging from $100 to $50,000,” Davolt said. “Donors can also provide it as a one-time gift, or it could be over a 24-month giving period if that is preferred.”

The Building Pride Campaign officially concludes on May 31, 2017.  Davolt expects the next update to the community to take place in March of 2017, with hopefully more encouraging news about the campaign.

“It is so encouraging to be able to report that we are now over halfway to making our goal of funding both complexes,” said Davolt.  “It continues to be the goal for us to have this campaign completed, and complexes in use, for the fall of 2017. We just can’t thank our sponsors, donors, and community enough for getting us to this point in such a short amount of time.”
