Update on fundraiser for a Language Village Tent – Help put us over the top!

Friends,
There were no festivals in 2020 because of COVID-19, but did you come to our Language Village at the festivals during the summer of 2019? If you did, we hope you enjoyed the language classes, songs and poetry, waulking songs, and just being in the village. To get ready for the return of the Language Village to festivals after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted we need to purchase a 30′ x 30′ festval tent in order to ensure that visitors to the village (hopefully later this coming summer) are comfortable even if it’s raining or is really hot.  The tent will cost $3,000, and we are asking for your support.

The exciting news is that we are almost there!
Two organizations and several individuals have already donated to the project,
and we are very grateful for their support.

The Clan Campbell Education Foundation
has awarded us a $1,500 matching grant to purchase a festival tent
(but we needed the other $1,500).

St. Andrew’s Society of Baltimore
donated $500 toward the project

 

And individuals from our student body and supporters have to date
donated $430!

We only need $570 more!

An cuidich sibh sinn?
Will you help us?
You can donate online: brùth an seo
Or, if you want to send a check, write to us at sgoilgaidhlig@gmail.com for the address.
Thank you in advance for your help!

Slàinte mhòr agus
a h-uile beannachd dhuibh!

The Language Village Needs a Festival Tent!

Friends,
There were no festivals this year because of COVID-19, but did you come to our Language Village at the festivals the previous summer? If you did, we hope you enjoyed the language classes, songs and poetry, waulking songs, and just being in the village. We still need $1,000 to purchase a large tent for our Language Village at festivals in order to ensure that visitors to the village (hopefully this coming summer) are comfortable even if it’s raining or is really hot. Two organizations have already donated to the project, and we are very grateful for their support.

We are 2/3 of the way to our $3,000 goal!
We need to raise $1,000 more!
