Dear Libertarian Party supporter,

So far, we've received 383 donations and pledges totaling $206,650.07 for our building fund.

The LNC set a goal of $248,000, so we are still short $41,349.93.

This weekend we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Libertarian Party. The LNC is meeting and will weigh in on this building project.

LP Monday Message: Building & 40th anniversary celebration

November 28, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Please contribute to our building fund.

I want to thank all 328 donors who have given or pledged a total of $201,219. Of that total, $111,644 has been collected and $89,575 is in the form of pledges to be collected later.

At this point, we have not committed to a specific property to purchase, or too a specific time to make a purchase. We plan to continue raising funds so we'll have more for a down payment.

LP Monday Message: Building in jeopardy

November 21, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I am serious when I tell you the LNC is on the verge of pulling the plug on the office we're looking at.

I hope to raise $30,000 more as soon as possible, just to help convince the rest of the LNC it is worth going forward.

I hope 100 of you will donate another $300 each as soon as possible.

Update: 54 donors yesterday - please help!

Dear Libertarian Party supporter,

Yesterday, 54 people contributed $4,685.00 online for the office building townhouse. That's almost $100 each.

Please go to our building fund page and make a generous donation. Please donate $1,000 if you can. $100 would be helpful as well.

So far we've raised $157,859 in donations and pledges toward buying an office building townhouse in Old Town Alexandria near DC.
