Join the Opening Together Challenge Match

Dollar-to-Dollar Community Match in Support of the New Kimball Library

Kimball Library Building Fundraising Task Force announces the Opening Together Challenge Match, a final fundraising effort to complete the building project. Along with other funds being raised through leadership giving and grants, the Challenge Match, a dollar-for-dollar $45,000 challenge, will go towards $160,000 needed for the project:

·        Sustainability and fair work wages requirements

·        Soil correction needs

·        Building furniture and fixtures program

·        An original state grant match gap


Nine generous business challengers have come forward with $45,000 and are challenging the rest of the community to raise the $45,000 match by October 15. Raising $45,000 from community members will unlock the total amount of $45,000 from these nine generous businesses:

A.M. Maus & Son

Arnold Companies


Ehlinger & Associates, Inc.

Harvest Bank

Dan and Tammy Konz

Kuechle Underground

Land O’ Lakes Oil &

Propane Company

Rice Companies, Inc.
