Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center is close to achieving a major milestone of its capital campaign named Opportunity Knocks. Sparked by a $2 million lead gift from Jill and David Gilmour, a $1 million gift from Christine and Bob Stiller, and a $1.4 million anonymous gift. Opportunity has raised $7.8 million towards its $8.6 million goal for land acquisition and the contruction of a modern 24,000 square foot school on 3.7 acres of property. We must now raise the $800,000 balance by March 2018 while construction is underway.
On the strength of this great response from many Palm Beach County donors, Opportunity broke ground for the new Erin H. Gilmour Early Learning Center at the corner of Donnell Road and Westgate Avenue, directly across the street from our present school in West Palm Beach.
A second, equally important campaign is a new $7 million endowment to ensure long-term financial strength while operating our new school for as many as 285 students. Over $525,000 in new contributions have made expressly for this vital endowment goal.
