Help Rebuild the Chapter House!

$7,916 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 151 people in 43 months
Early this morning, The Chapter House was lost to a devastating fire.  This was so much more than a pub--it was an Ithaca institution. To countless regular customers and former students, it was a second home. 

I am a former bartender (~1998-2000) and a Cornell alum. The Chapter House paid a good part of my tuition. Many of the staff were the same folks who ran the place almost 20 years ago, and this was their livelihood. This is a crushing loss for them, and a truly sad day for many generations of people who created incredible memories beneath those mugs.

To all the participants of the Chapter House GoFundMe campaign:

As you are probably well aware, it took an exceedingly long time for the Chapter House owners to figure out the feasibility and timeline of a rebuild. As we all witnessed in the news, there were many opinions and lots of hurdles to overcome. I am pleased to announce that according to the Ithaca Voice (link below), build plans have been submitted for permitting and released to the public!

As such, I am now in the process of (FINALLY) distributing our funds to the bar, in the hopes that our donations will help to recreate some of charm and soul of the old Chap. I will also privately release to the owners a donor list from this campaign (minus anyone who elected to remain anonymous.

Thanks to all who were willing to lend a hand in recreating a really special place, whose employees are like family to so many of us. I know we'll all look forward to raising a pint sometime late next year!

Cheers,
Dave
