Building For the Future Campaign Goal is Met.
As 2022 begins we are elated to announce that the $5M goal for the Building For the Future Campaign has been met. “Our families and friends came together to make this happen,” said Helen Burland, Executive Director. “They recognize how important this expansion is to the future of Saint Catherine Center, and we are so grateful for their generous response.”

While plans have been in motion for more than two years, fundraising for the campaign actively began in March 2021. “To meet our campaign goal in less than a year is clearly a testament to the generosity of the Saint Catherine community and the leadership of the Board and staff,” said Charles Chiusano, Chairman of the Board. “This is truly an exciting time for the Center.”

Campaign pledges and contributions will support an expansion that will double the size of Saint Catherine Center, creating much needed space for group and individual activities, including a commercial grade kitchen and hydroponic garden. (View the floorplan.) Expanded programming will also be supported through the reserve account funded by the campaign.

Final plans are being developed; initial meetings with town officials have begun; and the project timeline is being reviewed. As the program moves forward, regular updates will be posted on the Project Updates webpage. While the original goals for Building For the Future have been met, there are still opportunities to be part of the project. Contributions may be designated to the
expansion and will be included in the project and reserve fund.
