Thank you

August 06, 2018

From the Dilmun Hill Barn Project team, we would like to give our deepest thanks to all those who donated and supported our mission.

In the 3 months since our crowdfunding campaign we have made great strides towards the finalization of our design. We have been actively working alongside members of the Cornell administration to bring together the final pieces of our project. If you are interested in learning more about our recent progress and conversations with alumni, we invite you to check out our blog. We are beyond excited to see the project break ground very soon. It could not have been done without your support. We hope you continue to follow our journey.

Thank you.

The last day of our campaign

May 09, 2018

Hello everyone, 


On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your incredible support over the past 29 days of our crowdfunding campaign. We have less than one day left in the campaign, with 20% of our goal to go.


Over the past 29 days, we have loved hearing the personal stories that past Dilmun Hill managers have shared with us, and have been blown away by the outpouring of support from our friends, families, and other Cornell alumni.


Again, this project will result in the first ever student-designed building on campus in Cornell's history. We have been working so hard for the past year to drive our vision forward, and have come a long way from where we began last summer. We have built an incredible team of student architects, designers, engineers, and activists from the ground up, and cannot wait to see how the project will continue to evolve over the summer.


We would be so grateful for any help to make our final push over the next 23 hours. Please help us spread the word about this incredible project by sharing it on your social media accounts, calling up your friends and family, or reaching out to any sustainability or design initiatives that you are part of. If everyone takes a small amount of time to do this, we are confident that we can achieve our goal. 


Your donations and support have contributed towards a historic initiative that will forever change campus. 


Thank you,

Alena Hutchinson
