Welcome to our second Campaign Roundup, a monthly newsletter to keep you up to speed on the activities and progress of National Western’s Capital Campaign.
We received two remarkable gifts this past month. A $2.5MM gift will permanently name the Heritage Center, which will be in the Legacy Building. The Heritage Center will honor the Western way of life by showcasing the traditions of ranching, farming and Stock Show activities and promoting and encouraging these traditions into the future. True to its name, it will be home to National Western archives dating back more than a century.
The second gift, a $1MM unrestricted gift, I can assure you will be put to good use. In the coming months we will be announcing the names of our campaign donors so we can all thank them publicly for their support.
I don’t have to tell you that the National Western Center is a landmark project, a testament to a thriving West and truly a once-in-a-century opportunity to reshape, energize and celebrate our Western values and heritage. I am so humbled and proud to be playing a part in this effort.
