Dear Randolph Central Patron,
I am excited to talk to you about a project that Randolph Central School Corporation is undertaking. For years our softball team has practiced and played in Goodrich Park. We are grateful that the City of Winchester has been willing to let us use that facility and has incurred the cost to maintain it for so long. In reality, this arrangement limits time on the softball diamond for the school teams and for other teams the city is hosting on that field. To build a really successful program, we need to maximize playing time for the Winchester Community High School softball team and for all the feeder programs that feed into the high school team. To do that WCHS needs its own softball diamond to increase the time our girls practice, and the park diamond can then be utilized for more hours by the feeder programs.
Kids are the benefactors of this project, and they are the community’s greatest asset. Our girls deserve their own softball diamond, and kids in the feeder programs deserve more time on a diamond. As we move forward, the Corporation is able to fund half of the cost of this project ($122,500) but will need to raise the other half of the needed funds through private donations.
On the companion document to this letter, you will find estimated costs of the project based on initial quotes the corporation has received. On the other side of that document, you will find Champion Levels of Giving. We are asking that you and/or your business consider giving at one of those levels to benefit the girls in our community. As you can see, depending on the level of the gift, there are opportunities for signage ranging from one year to ten years or even a permanent sign at the highest level. Randolph Central has six different athletic venues, and there are opportunities at one or all of those venues for a donor. There are additional benefits at each level, as indicated.
Please consider a gift to help us build our softball diamond and improve our baseball field! Your donation will be greatly appreciated by the school board, administration, teachers, staff, parents, and especially the students of Randolph Central School Corporation. Click on the link below to donate or send a check to the address below. If you use the link, the payment processing fee is deducted from the donation, so 3.2% plus 20 cents per transaction is deducted from what you donate to the campaign. In other words the school will receive $96.60 for every $100 donation. The school will receive 100% of the donation if you send a check to the address below.
