Chamber honours pledge to Badlands Community facility

    The Badlands Community Facility Campaign Cabinet would like to thank the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce (DDCC) for another payment towards their pledge of $250,000 that was received on Thursday. 
    In attendance was Jeff Hall, Campaign Cabinet Co-chair, accepting the cheque on behalf of the facility, from John Shoff, Board Vice President of the DDCC.
    As the end of the year approaches, now is the time to honour those pledge payments for a 2011 charitable receipt. Charitable donations give companies and individuals the ability to lower the taxes they pay for the year. Along with the benefit of lowering taxes, spreading a pledge over multiple years also gives individuals and companies a way to manage and support the Badlands Community Facility at a higher capacity.
    For instance, a gift of $100,000 may sound intimidating, but broken down into payments of $20,000 a year for 5 years is much more manageable. The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce is a great example of just that, as they have broken their pledge into payments of $50,000.
    “We would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for their continuous support of the Badlands Community Facility and for their regular payments,” said Hall. “Large donations like this, whether they come as a lump sum or are spread over a number of years, help create a strong foundation for our fundraising efforts and exemplify the community’s commitment to the project.”
    Shoff adds, “On behalf of the Drumheller & District Chamber of Commerce I am happy to present this cheque to the Badlands Community Facility.  We believe the Badlands Community Facility will open many doors for the Drumheller business community to host larger events, and bring in new business opportunities to the area.”
