Great Progress on Campaign to Save the Markham Home - Financial Gap Greatly Reduced! Neighbors Seek Continued Support to Reach October 22 Final Goal
Contributed By: Save the Markham Home
Oct 14, 2014 — Good news continues in efforts to save the Markham Home! Through negotiations between the neighborhood campaign, buyer John McCulloch/McCulloch Construction and developer Peter Kusyk the gap needing to be filled has been reduced to $35,000 to save the home.
This is a great improvement over the initial $100,000 gap; and after two $10,000 earnest money payments from the neighborhood campaign, the pressure is on to secure the deal by October 22 and raise just $15,000 more.
The efforts and support of the community to save the home from demolition continue to be recognized, and the Save the Markham Home campaign has made great inroads thus far. The campaign will be hosting a silent auction this Sunday, October 19 from 4:00 to 6:00 at Migration Brewing Annex, 2828 NE Glisan.
Donations are tax-deductible due to the partnership the campaign has with the Architectural Heritage Center. Donors can also contribute online at www.gofundme.com/e4vsjk, or by writing a check to the Architectural Heritage Center and mailing it to the Save the Markham Home campaign, 3226 NE Glisan, Portland, Oregon.
Through donor contributions the campaign will preserve part of Portland’s history and vibrant communities. Stopping the demolition of the Markham Home will also avoid over 90,000 lbs. going to Portland’s landfill.
Thank you for your continued support -- this has made a difference!
