What is the Ad Building Preservation Project?
The Ad Building Preservation Project is being undertaken to preserve the iconic Administration Building on Nebraska Christian’s campus. Built in 1885, the Ad Building has served Central Nebraska by housing Christian education since 1885. The campus has been a college, a teaching school, a high school, and currently is a PreK-12 private Christian school.
What is the timeline?
The Ad Building Preservation Project was launched in February of 2019, and work on the building began in July of 2019. Much of the external work was completed by October, and the remaining work should be completed in summer 2020. NC is committed to completing the project debt-free.
What about the inside of the Ad Building?
The interior needs of the Ad Building are currently being addressed, and it is our goal to make the space more functional. This is being done within the scope of the Ad Building Preservation Project with funds that have already been raised.
What about the Gym Building?
Because we believe we can accomplish our goal of sealing and preserving the Ad Building with the funds that have already been raised, we are now moving our preservation project focus to the exterior and interior of the current gymnasium building. Our fundraising efforts will now focus on the most critical needs to update and make that space more functional. Learn more about the Gym Building Preservation Project here.
Phase 2A of the Next 50 Years Capital Campaign, which addresses the kitchen, dining hall, and restrooms of the gym building, is running concurrently with the Ad Building & Gym Building Preservation Projects and has recently made some exciting progress! Learn more about Phase 2A here.
What about the General Budget?
Funds for the Ad Building & Gym Building Preservation Projects and Phase 2A must be raised separately from the annual funding for the General Budget. If you would like to give to the general budget, you can do so here.
