Advisory Council all played a role in helping to attract the new employer to the community. “The most important factor, and I think everyone here will agree with this, is the Vermillion Now! Contributors,” Preister said. “Vermillion NOW! has been such a success in the last couple of years. The community has joined together; there’s been a lot of teamwork with all of the donations. This wouldn’t have been possible without all of the contributors that make Vermillion NOW! possible.” In July of 2009, organizers of Vermillion NOW! not only met their goal of $1.5 million in donations and pledges, but surpassed it. Over 105 local investors pledged amounts ranging from a high of $450,000 pledged by the city of Vermillion in $90,000 increments over the next five years, to several one-time gifts of $500 or less. A committee made up of approximately 20 people settled on several main goals at the time of the launch of the Vermillion NOW! campaign in January 2009, including new business recruitment and expansion, marketing, workforce development and entrepreneurial development. The capital campaign was launched in January 2009 after an analysis of the Vermillion community ? VCDC, Page 14
