Who manages the funds?

Cornell University Botanic Gardens manages the funds in a designated account.  Cornell University is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.



What is the goal of our fundraising?

Cornell has agreed to build and install the bench and interpretive signage, and maintain the site for 25 years, for $30,000.  We would like to raise several thousands dollars more, to pay for certain modifications and contingencies. 


当我们达到筹款目标后,会在此向大家宣布,并停止募捐活动。 最终没有用完的款项会被捐给康奈尔大学植物园。

What happens to extra funds, if any?

When we reach our goal, we will announce it and stop the fundraising activities.  Any unused funds already raised will be donated to the Botanic Gardens.



What happens if the project is under-funded?

With the overwhelming support received we are confident of reaching our goal.  In the extreme unlikely case the project is terminated the Botanic Gardens will use the already donated funds as it sees fit.



How can I monitor the fundraising progress?

Cornell Botanic Gardens' new fundraising website will be online soon.  The new website will have a progress indicator.  We will also report the progress periodically here in the blog.
