2013 Update!


TO:                  Donors and Friends of the Daniels School Restoration Project

FROM:            Gloria Egger, Secretary/Treasurer and Bonnie Pitkin, President
                        of the Venado Historical Society

Much has happened since our last update!
  • The decision was made to acquire a grant (s) in order to obtain the $30,000 to $40,000 needed to complete the restoration of the school.
  • Gloria attended a grant writing class at SRJC and began the lengthy process of applying for the Federal and State Exemption Status, which is a requirement of foundations or corporations who award grants.
  • An attorney was secured, who reduced his fee, after seeing all the paperwork and endless forms Gloria had completed.  All request forms have been filed with the U.S. Treasury and State and now we have a waiting period of up to six (6) months.
  • In the interim, Gloria will research foundations that may be interested in the project and then grant forms will be prepared.

 Don’t give up on us.
We will preserve and complete the restoration of the Daniels School.
We look forward to conducting field trips for students in the near future.
