#GivingTuesday – M&T Bank Challenge matches donations for The Richardson Olmsted Campus

The Richardson Olmsted Campus is asking for your help during this upcoming #GivingTuesday, November 28. The campus has teamed up with M&T Bank to challenge us to step up our donation efforts, in order to reach its $10 million goal, which would see the launch the Lipsey Architecture Center of Buffalo.

“The Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center will provide orientation, prompt inspiration, and serve as a gathering place to launch new ideas related to architecture.” – Richardson Center Corporation

If $10 million sounds like beaucoup bucks , then you will be happy to know that the majority of the goal has already been fulfilled, and only a relatively small amount of fundraising remains for this specific effort. 

“On #GivingTuesday, November 28, M&T Bank will generously match your donations to the Richardson dollar-for-dollar! Your $25 donation will become $50, your $100 will become $200, and together we can continue to find new uses for our iconic historic site.” 

The Richardson Renaissance campaign continues, with these latest gift-giving campaigns. 2017 was a stellar year for the campus. Thanks to a $102.5 million effort, the first three buildings were completed. Now, the community is looking forward to further phases of the 145-year-old National Historic Landmark – “the redevelopment of the remaining 10 buildings and 36 acres.” Plans are already underway, and with your help they will incrementally come to fruition… even sooner!

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
