In late 2017 we were presented with a wonderful new opportunity: two West Windsor families have offered to purchase and donate a high-quality, used Doppelmayr T-bar Lift ($75,000 cost) and pay for installation-related permitting expenses (expected $25,000 cost). The lift has been purchased by the potential donors and has arrived in Brownsville. It is being stored on site and will be donated to Ascutney Outdoors once the AOC and Capital Campaign is fully funded.
Update January 28th, 2018
We're pleased to report that fundraising is well underway for this T-Bar opportunity! We are delighted to announce that we received a “challenge grant” in December of $34,000 for the T-bar fundraising campaign. With $51,000 already in hand, AO needs to raise only $15,000 more from the community to “unlock” the $34,000 and meet the goal of $100,000 for the installation of the T-bar! If you can’t wait to see a T-Bar up on ‘our mountain’ again, please consider making a donation to help make this lift opportunity become a reality!
In an exciting development at this morning's Community Q&A session, it was announced that the T-Bar is officially being donated to Ascutney Outdoors today, January 28th 2018. The donation was originally contingent on a fully-funded Capital Campaign and an additional $100,000 being raised for the T-Bar installation costs. However, the contingency has been removed by the donors as a result of the impressive success of the fundraising to date. The generous donation was accepted by Ascutney Outdoors from long-time Brownsville residents, Glenn and Shelley Seward, and we are all very excited as we enter the final stage of fundraising for this project.
Support from our community is key to our success and truly appreciated.
