A year ago, Baylor University began exploring a new on-campus home for its thriving football program. A series of Stadium Founders stepped forward early in the process to get the ball rolling on Baylor Stadium. Now as the stadium begins to take shape on the banks of the Brazos, a public fundraising initiative has been launched to help move Baylor Stadium from dream to reality.
The Baylor Stadium Bricks campaign launched on Dec. 17 and honored the success of the 2012 season. Faculty and staff were the first to receive information about the Baylor Stadium Bricks campaign. On Dec. 19 the initiative launched to all of Baylor Nation. To date, almost 750 gifts to the campaign have been received. In appreciation for these gifts, engraved bricks with personalized messages designed by the donors will be installed at the new stadium. The Baylor Stadium Bricks campaign will continue through spring 2014 or until all available bricks have been reserved.
Baylor has partnered with Fund Raisers, Ltd., of Boise, Idaho, to manage the production and engraving of the high-quality bricks for installation at Baylor Stadium. Four varieties of bricks are available, beginning with a 4x8-inch red brick for a gift of $175 and an 8x8-inch red brick for a gift of $350. The BU logo on an 8x8 brick is available for a total gift of $500.
A limited number of premium pavers will be installed to form a BU design element in the stadium's south plaza. Bricks in this special design feature are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a gift of $1,250 each.
Stadium Bricks Gift Certificates are also available, allowing fans to donate a gift in honor of and reserve a brick as a gift for someone while providing them the opportunity to customize the engraved message themselves.
If you would like be a part of building Baylor Stadium, give a tax-deductible gift to the Baylor Stadium Bricks campaign. Pay tribute those who have been important in your life; honor significant milestones in the life of your family or celebrate the Bears' past successes, or the successes yet to come. Your personalized brick will be a lasting reminder of your support for this important project in the life of the University.
