On February 23, CHCI launched the final phase of Building Our Future, Together – CHCI’s capital campaign to transform our new home into a state-of-the-art 21st Century Leadership Center and innovation hub (just a few blocks from the White House!). To kick off the campaign, CHCI board member and campaign ambassador, Wendy Thompson-Marquez issued a challenge to her fellow board members and advisory council members. She and her husband Dario Marquez generously offered to match up to $10,000 if fellow members could collectively donate $10,000 by March 7, 2016.
Not only did they meet the $10,000 goal, they surpassed it! Together with online donations, pledges, employer matches, and the generous matching gift, the CHCIA Board and Advisory Council raised a total of $21,525 for Building Our Future, Together.
“This is our opportunity to leave a lasting mark on an institution that has inspired and transformed so many lives,” said Wendy Thompson-Marquez.
CHCI would like to express our deepest appreciation to the six Cornerstone Donors, five Capstone Donors, and all the individual donors for their generosity and commitment to Developing the Next Generation of Latino Leaders.
