On behalf of the Trustees of the Des Moines Consistory Building Trust, I am pleased to announce a huge opportunity for our spectacular Consistory Building. We have been challenged by the WT and Edna Dahl Foundation to raise $100,000.00 for the renovation of the Dahl Grand Banquet room and kitchen areas.
When we are successful, the WT and Edna Dahl Foundation will match our fund-raising with a grant of $100,000.00. This challenge grant is good for one year. This exciting opportunity means every dollar you donate to the DMCBT will be doubled due to this amazing offer.
We are posting this today, to ensure you have a chance to make a donation in 2018 or 2019 as you so desire.
Below is a picture of the planned renovations to the WT and Edna Dahl Grand Banquet room.
As you can see, it will involve new painting and lighting, as well as updating the marble look of the pillars.
One of the most important aspects of this grant is to involve every one of our 1089 members in the Des Moines Scottish Rite bodies. This means that no donation is considered too small or inconsequential. Therefore, we are asking each member to consider making some sort of contribution. We would like to show 100% of our members want to preserve our historic Consistory building.
An additional way that you can participate is make a monthly donation via credit card. We have the ability to charge your debit or credit card each month. A couple of amounts that we would suggest are $83.33 per month equaling $1000 for the campaign or $32 per month to represent the 32 degrees of the Scottish Rite.
You can make your donation by calling the office (515-288-8927) or by mailing your check payable to the Des Moines Consistory Building Trust (519 Park Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50309).
Regardless of how you choose to participate, we thank you for your membership in the Des Moines Consistory and wish you the best during this holiday season.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
HOLIDAY OFFICE CLOSING SCHEDULE
