Friends, Supporters, Benefactors and Major Funders

renderingEarlier in the life of our project, the Society extended an invitation to individuals and organizations to support our initiative by subscribing as friends of the project. The invitation was extended not only in the belief that evidence of widespread support from within the community would be an asset when applications for funding were submitted to the senior levels of government, but also in the hope that community members would become more aware of the project and would follow its progress with increased interest.

Those who responded to that invitation, and whose support has been greatly appreciated, are listed below as Friends of the Project, along with our Supporters, Benefactors and Major Funders.

MAJOR FUNDERS OF THE PROJECT

And last but by no means least are the many government and private organizations that have funded not only the actual construction of our cultural centre, but also the multitude of tasks that preceded construction. In most of those cases we are obligated by our funding agreements to acknowledge those contributions, but we would in any event have wanted to do so out of our extreme gratitude for the generosity of these organizations and the support of their officials. These organizations are listed as Major Funders of the Project.
