Pursuit Capital Campaign

Celebrating Pursuit 1.0


Please RSVP to Jourdan Ellis at jellis@scfpartners.com.

What is Pursuit?

In January The Center launched Pursuit for those with disABILITIES, our first capital campaign in 25 years.

Pursuit is aiming to raise $11 million to benefit the Center! As part of the campaign, the campaign chairman, David Baldwin, will ride his bicycle 4,000 miles across the country (Oregon to Delaware), stopping at organizations similar in mission to The Center to increase awareness of those with disABILITIES. The Pursuit team will learn and share cutting edge services and bring some of them back to The Center.

The goals of the campaign are to:

  • Pursue Knowledge by visiting like organizations to share best practices
  • Pursue Sustainability by raising $11 million to purchase our own land, improve the campus, advance programming, and establish a long-term growth fund
  • Pursue Long-Term Success by refining The Center’s long-term growth strategy and continuing to attract and broaden our base of support
