Lighthouse Lodge will not incur debt. The entire project will be done one phase at a time. Money will be raised and placed in a secure interest bearing account until there is enough to complete one phase of the project. Then the next phase will be started. I am starting from scratch. I am just now beginning the fund raising adventure by contacting you and other such foundations. A Realtor is looking for land in south Utah County. An architect is preparing a preliminary sketch for the building complex.
I believe that there are philanthropists who are looking for a great cause to fund and will find Lighthouse Lodge Successful Living Center to be revolutionary, of great worth to children and their single mothers (a basic building block of society), and an exciting crusade with which to be affiliated. I invite you to be among them. Your contribution will be most helpful and appreciated.
