Quayle Center launches annual campaign

Posted: Friday, June 19, 2015

The Quayle Center will be conducting its annual fundraising campaign, Efforts for Education, from now through August. The campaign helps to underwrite the educational programs and exhibits of the Center.

“Many people do not realize what an outstanding educational resource we have here in Huntington,” said Efforts Co-Chair, Ryan Warner. “The Center teaches thousands of schoolchildren each year, not only on field trips but also on outreach programming to schools. The generosity of the individuals and companies of our community makes that possible.”

Educational programming focused on teaching children about government, its history and process, as well as citizenship is the primary mission of the Center. Many of the students come from Huntington County Schools, as well as Northwest Allen, Southwest Allen, Noblesville and Hamilton Southeastern schools. However, the Center’s reach is far beyond that. This past spring, the Center taught students from nine different school corporations and diverse areas throughout the state, such as West Lafayette, Monticello, Kokomo and Franklin.

The Efforts for Education annual campaign is vital to the mission of the Center by keeping admission fees for educational programming as low as possible for the schools and students. The goal of the 2015 Efforts for Education campaign is to raise $30,000. Toward this goal, the Center welcomes all levels of support. Contributors of $300 and above are considered an official “class sponsor.” The Center will soon have a method to contribute online through a secure account on its newly redesigned website.

The Quayle Vice Presidential Learning Center is overseen by the private not-for-profit Dan Quayle Commemorative Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All income for the Center is by donation, earned income through admissions and gift shop sales, fundraising events and grants.
