Mabee Challenge Grant
Central Receives Challenge Grant from the Mabee Foundation
The J.E. and L. E. Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Oklahoma has issued a $500,000 challenge grant to Central for housing. The challenge grant means Central has to secure $1,000,000 in new gifts/pledges for the next phase of our capital campaign. Once Central has $1,000,000 in new pledges, the Mabee Foundation will award the $500,000 challenge grant.
The new pledges have to be secured by October 1, 2011.
The housing component of our campaign is flexible housing intended to be used a variety of ways.
