Cary Institute is pleased to announce that the Campaign for Cary has raised more than $1 million towards its $2 million goal to support the reimagining of the Institute’s headquarters. We want to thank our Trustees, the Campaign for Cary steering committee, and our donors for helping us reach this milestone.
The Campaign, which launched in August with the help of our Campaign Chairs Scott and Pamela Ulm, supports a $13 million project to renovate the main building on Cary’s campus. To date, the Institute has raised or secured over $12 million and is asking for the public’s help to reach our goal.
Cary President Joshua Ginsberg notes that the work on the building was both necessary and urgent. “The 45-year-old building needed updating. We wanted the renovation to support Cary’s mission, creating a headquarters that is highly energy efficient and built sustainably. The design supports the collaborative nature of 21st century science, allowing our scientists to work with peers and students in the next room and across the globe.”
We are grateful to Campaign committee member Eric Ewing, who made the gift to bring us over the $1 million milestone, and to all our donors who have supported this project and will continue to support it.
Work on the building began in August and is expected to last 12-18 months. To view video renderings of the completed project and to learn more about the Campaign for Cary visit: www.caryinstitute.org/renovation-faqs
