Fairfield, CT - The Stratfield Village Association (SVA), a certified 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, announced today the launch of a brick fundraising campaign to supplement funding the Four Corners renovation project. Individuals and businesses will be able to purchase a brick with a customized engraving to be included in the new brick sidewalks that are part of the project.
The town of Fairfield and the SVA are working with BL Companies on the redesign of the Four Corners, a project that entails pedestrian and streetscape enhancements to the Stratfield Village Business District located at the intersection of Stratfield (State Route 59) and Fairfield Woods Roads. The project will improve pedestrian safety, beautify the area and increase and enhance economic development. The SVA has spearheaded the vision and fundraising for the project, working for several years with town and state organizations, as well as local businesses and members of the community to bring the project to fruition.
The engraved bricks will be made available for purchase during two, five-week periods – the first starting Friday, January 15, and the second starting Monday, April 19. There are a limited number of bricks available because of space constraints.
The SVA’s personalized sales page is at http://www.bricksrus.com/donorsite/stratfieldvillageassociation . Bricks can be purchased in two sizes – 4”x 8” for $100 with up to three lines of text, or 8”x 8” for $200 with up to 6 lines of text. Lastly, a corporate sponsor may purchase an 8”x 8” brick with 3 lines of text and include a company logo.
The SVA has raised $900,000 of its $1 million goal for the project to date. A $650,000 state grant was secured by the elected officials who represent Stratfield Village in the state legislature - Rep. Cristin McCarthy Vahey, Rep. Laura Devlin, and state Sen. Tony Hwang. Other major contributions include a $100,000 donation from Sacred Heart University and a $100,000 donation from the Town of Fairfield. The remainder of the funds have been raised by the SVA through special events and earmarked donations.
