The center was financed by a capital campaign, personal gifts and endowments, and a low-interest Little Rock-based bond issue. No general fund donations were used for construction of the buildings. Your donations go to help us end hunger and poverty by providing animals and training to families in need.
Financing for the building was provided by a capital campaign, generous gifts to the building fund and low-interest loans. Before deciding to build the new offices, our Finance Department performed a cost-benefit analysis comparing the long-term cost of the rented space we were using at the time, versus constructing a new office building. The analysis revealed that, over a 20-year period, the pay-off period for the loan, a new building would save operational dollars. We will then own the building and have an asset, not a lease, and the synergy of having all headquarters employees in the same building will be invaluable. Payments on the loan are made from ongoing capital campaign funds, endowments, rent and leases on other assets we own, as well as designated gifts by donors.
