About this fundraiser

How do we celebrate the Waunakee Community School District's accomplishment of being on the leading edge academically and performing above state and national averages for generations? Would you like to be a part of symbolically honoring all Waunakee Community School District (WCSD) teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication in making WCSD one of the state's top school districts? Would you like to help create a legacy of "excellence in education" that has significantly benefited our community's children/families, growth and economy?

In researching other communities around the world, we, the Waunakee Area Public Arts Committee, along with active and retired business leaders, educators and volunteers have come together to ask for your support in commissioning a major art work/sculpture to be placed at the Waunakee High School Southwest plaza entrance. The WCSD Board has approved the site.

This is a location that thousands of families and residents in the school district and community pass, annually, attending school and community events and meetings. It is,
of course, the high school students' daily path. The sculpture's theme is to celebrate teachers/staff and education excellence in WCSD. It may consist of bronze, metal, stone, etc., and will include LED or other light features. It will be a daily dedication for decades to come.

Advised by CODAworx and art and sculpture professors at the UW- Madison, we have completed a national request for qualification and selected three sculptor artist finalists. These artists were recently interviewed and visited Waunakee. They will submit their final proposals by the end of November 2017. The finalists will consider seven conceptual ideas drafted by Waunakee High School advanced art workshop students. Students (art, English, engineering, marketing, economics, horticulture, Innovation Center) and teachers will interact with the finalist artist during on-site visits and via social media. There will be field trips to any local company fabricators. Working with a world class sculptor artist will be life transforming for some students.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the project, inclusive of site work. We are at half of our goal with pledges and monies received. If you would like to donate to this fund, go to the WCSD's crowd funding site www.classmunity. com/waunakeewi and become part of preserving our excellence in education legacy and honoring the people that have helped make this community a place our great grandparents are proud of and our great grandchildren will benefit and enjoy.

Thank you for your time, consideration and support! We hope your support will bring you much joy, reward and satisfaction, now, and for years to come.
