Benson Lois - Score: 90.000
Ticket surcharge is an interesting way to demonstrate local support. Obviously, a good hvac system is vital, and it is not a sexy object for fundraising. I would still like to see fundraising above and beyond the ticket surcharge particularly since this is situated at a public institution supported by state funds. Is the facility used primarily through students and faculty of Eastern Florida State College or is it perceived and utilized as a community facility. The answer to this will affect my score on project impact. Very complete budget and scope.

The support materials and video was very helpful in reviewing this application. The need is great and was appropriately communicated and documented.

The King Center has clearly shown a need for this project. It seems to me a massive H/AC system that is 30 years old needs replacement.

This project has demonstrated impressive community involvement particularily with the VSA Showcase, graduations and local dance recitals.

 Very informative grant. I like it.

Very well written grant application with a clear need. Some of the best support materials I've ever seen. Kudos for the video and including all the work orders for repairs that were needed in the past.

Interested to know the source of the matching funds beyond the Capital Improvement Fund from King Center?  Reserves?  Donor dollars?  Congratulations on just having a Capital Reserve Fund!

Surprised that even with the solid planning described in the grant that the organization does not see ANY loss of revenue during this major reno.  Is this realistic?

Strong letters of support and other support materials (especially appreciated the video).

A worthy project and a well written grant.

Your surcharge for a Capital Improvement fund is very wise.  I applaud you.  Do you have a 30 year strategic replacement plan that gives you target goals for it?


The 2 minute video was VERY HELPFUL.  It gave us everything we needed in a much better format than the application itself!  Thank you.
