    JT construction funding

    Channel 13 ran a news story on the JT Stadium construction beginning this evening. They mentioned funding coming from donations and the sale of bonds, taxable and tax-exempt. Can an individual buy these through their broker and how does it work? Are they still available? This would be a great way to diversify your investments and help the program at the same time.

    Re: JT construction funding

    I have a sneaking suspicion that there is a major donor out there and Jamie is just waiting for the timing to be right to make a big announcement.

    Or maybe I'm just hoping?

    Haven't they been announcing some pretty big donors the past few home games? At KSU, I thought it was the family that started/owns Jeld-Wen. They did an on field recognition last week, but I didn't catch who.

    Last week it was the owner of Hunziker Real Estate.

    I only hope that there is a big donor ready to go and an announcement can be made to bowl in the south end zone by the time the 2009 season begins.

    I don't care if Jeld-Wen donates but I hope they give money and not windows.

    I bet all those windows and doors for the new suites will cost a pretty penny.

    I personally am just not a fan of their windows. Besides, I think Architectural Wall Systems probably have a pretty good shot at that. They have already done a fair amount of work for ISU, i.e. Rieman Gardens, Jacobson Building.

    I thought you were joking - I'm quite sure they're just writing a check.

    Yea, I am a ConE. I probably should have picked up on the joke thing. I guess that's the engineering side coming out.

    Re: JT construction funding

    I know I've seen them announce at least one (I'm thinking two) donations of half a million, and the Hunzikers donated 1.25 million I believe. That said, the improvements are projected to cost a lot more than that, so they can use all the money they can get.

    I don't think you have to use your broker to use municipal bonds.

    I think they just donated like $30million to the University of Dubuque.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
