DONOR OPEN HOUSE THIS SUNDAY!
DONATIONS ARE NOW TAX DEDUCTIBLE with the Architectural Heritage Center.
We hit two major milestones, delivered earnest money payments and again have negotiated a significantly reduced price!
In addition to the demolition delay, John McCulloch (McCulloch Construction) and Peter Kusyk have negotiated a reduced purchase of $635,000 -- and the gap the neighborhood campaign needs to raise is again greatly narrowed. The support of our community has made this happen! We have raised $20,000 and met two earnest money milestones. We have our final payment of $15,000 due Oct. 22.
We have also secured a relationship with Portland's Architectural Heritage Center (AHC). We are pleased to welcome the Architectural Heritage Center as a partner in these efforts, because donations from here on out will be tax deductible!
HOW TO BE A HERO:
Write your tax-deductible check to: Architectural Heritage Center (ID #94-3090169)
Mail to: Save the Markham Home, 3226 NE Glisan, Portland, OR 97232 . 100% of your contribution will go to saving the Markham Home.
You can also give here at the GoFundMe site (this is a convenient option, but please note fees are removed from your donation and all funds do not go to the campaign). You will receive confirmation of your donation either way.
WHY BE A HERO?
You can help preserve part of Portland's history!
You can help avoid nearly 90,000 lbs going to the landfill!
You can make a valuable contribution to Portland's communities!
You can help bring attention to the demolition of historic homes!
Everyone who gives will be invited to a tour of the home, plus giving will be commemorated on location -- your efforts will be recognized.
WHAT WE PROMISE:
100% of the funds raised will go towards filling the gap in the purchase price and we will let everyone know when that goal is met. Donations are tax-deductible and non-refundable and will be delivered to the AHC from the SMH campaign. If we are not successful in our campaign, all contributions will go to the AHC for preservation education and advocacy efforts.

Updates to this effort and all Markham Home activities will be posted on this page and the campaign's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/savemarkhamhome
Thank you for being a Hero!
Through negotiations between the neighborhood campaign, buyer John McCulloch/McCulloch Construction and developer Peter Kusyk the gap needing to be filled has been reduced to $35,000 to save the home.
Thanks to your support, this is a great improvement over the initial $100,000 gap; and after two $10,000 earnest money payments from the neighborhood campaign, the pressure is on to secure the deal by October 22 and raise just $15,000 more.
The efforts and support of the community to save the home from demolition continue to be recognized, and the Save the Markham Home campaign has made great inroads thus far. The campaign will be hosting a silent auction this Sunday, October 19 from 4:00 to 6:00 at Migration Brewing Annex, 2828 NE Glisan.
Hope to see you and thank you for your support! Truly!
