Fundraising consultant hired for Badlands Community Facility

    Fundraising efforts for the Badlands Community Facility’s phase 1, which is aiming for completion by next August, has taken a step forward with the hiring of a fundraising consulting company out of Calgary.     Nine Lions Development Consulting was hired by council at Monday’s regular meeting for $223,000.
    The move to hire the group, which will manage the campaign to successfully raise $5,000,000 for the estimated $23,000,000 phase 1 of the sporting complex, was essential says fundraising committee chair Jeff Hall.
    “Anyone who wants to be successful,” hires consultants like Nine Lions, said Hall.
    As of now, the fundraising committee is not releasing the dollar amount for funds raised so far.
    Nine Lions will be working with the committee step-by-step to create a plan for a successful fundraising – things like how to approach potential donors, deciding what amount to ask for, and where to focus the campaign.
    The hiring cost is all inclusive for both phases of the Badlands Community Facility, said Hall.
    Construction costs for phase 2 have not been estimated yet.
