Vovcha Tropa New Pool Fundraiser

$50,150 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 164 people in 20 months
Created May 26, 2017
***Update - the initial goal was reached in 72 hours - the matching donor is excited we met it so quickly!  Thank you all for your donations for swim time at Vovcha!
As the initial amount will not meet the total cost of the larger new pool, which a professional contractor guesstimated at around $200,000, the goal has been changed. Let's see if we can reach a new goal - $50,000.  This amount plus the matching donor's will still not meet the full cost of the pool, but will certainly get us much closer.

The minimum size of the pool is set at 75ft by 30ft.  But pending how well fundraising goes - an 85ft by 36ft pool could be attainable.

Remember, any amount at all helps us reach this goal, thanks to all the donors!

Original Campain Story:
Vovcha Tropa Facilities Committee was approached by an anonymous donor with a proposal.  The proposal: raise $20,000 and the donor will match the raised funds.  However, the time limit for this proposal is until June 15th!  We have already received donations tallying to $5,550 outside of this campaign. Therefore total needed through this fundraiser is $14,450.

As part of this proposal, a project list was developed towards what this money would go to.  A few iterations of lists were presented but an idea was struck within Vovcha Tropa's Facilities committee; What if Vovcha expanded the existing pool!?

After contacting specialist contractors in the pool industry, the Facilities Committee found out expanding the existing pool would be just as much as building a new pool!  As a result, plans changed a bit again and are going in a new direction - A NEW POOL!

The current proposed idea is to have this pool behind the Kramnytsia and Pavilion.  This seems to be the most centrally located spot.  The pool will double the capacity of the existing infrastructure Vovcha currently has.  More kids will be able to use the pool for activities for longer periods of time rather than having round robins.  Multiple tabory (camps) would also be able to utilize the two pools simultaneously.  

These funds (if we raise $20,000 plus the donors matching funds of $20,000) will not be enough to cover the full cost of the new pool.  However it will allow us to get a good head start on funding this pool.

We are reaching out to all parents, kurins, former plastuny, current plastuny - actually anyone who has ever used the current pool!  We need your help to match the funds of the anonymous donor!

Thank you in advance for your support!  

After you donate please share this with your friends either through email, text, Facebook, etc.  Let's get the word out to all Пластуни!
