We want to provide you an update as we have some exciting news to share as we continue the development of the Lions for Hope Complex. Construction on the West field has been coming along nicely despite the harsh Chicago winter and the rainy past few weeks.
We should have the field completed by the end of July and it will be named the J. Tyke Nollman Field.
We want to thank the First Fifteen, President’s XV and Captains VX and other donors that have contributed to the Lions for Hope Sports complex that we will call home!
You can still join the team!
At the end of March, we hired Cogeo, a firm specializing in organizational management and development for capital build-outs and initiatives.
Cogeo is a trusted advisor that will guide us to build a better, more professional organization as we continue to take our project to the public.
Most importantly, they will help us develop an effective capital campaign for the remaining phases (the building and East field) and our immediate needs.
There are two short-term projects that Cogeo will help us with:
- As we identify potential donors, Cogeo will help us develop the strategy to approach and gauge their interest in becoming engaged with us. We need your help in building out our potential donor list.
- Building out our steering committee. The committee is a group of individuals expected to help drive campaign activity by connecting us with their network. Being on the steering committee is not a big time commitment. Rather, these individuals will be engaged to make connections and help fundraising efforts.
If you are interested in learning more about the steering committee or helping in any capacity, please contact us.
