Some of our media partners will be proving  barter supports tenure the project and may not necessarily be cash donors. The names of our contributions (not amount contributed; except the ones in orange and green are the ones above the suggested donation request ) will be displayed on the website and on some social media starting by Monday of this week.  We hope to have  a contribution display board near the monument with the names of the 1000s of contributors when the monument is unveiled.
