Five years ago, a feasibility study recommended that The Campaign for tpt aim to raise $15 - 17 million. When the campaign committee met, they stretched that goal to $20 million. After extraordinary support from a number of lead gifts, the committee set a new target of $30 million. In June we celebrated having reached the $37 million mark. Thank you donors and community partners for all you have done to make The Campaign for tpt a success.
