    • "The Art of Life" Exhibit has been displayed at CSU on April 18 and April 19 (2016) and at UCLA on May 23, 2016.
    • The "Stop and Think" Exhibit has been displayed at CSU on April 20 (2016) and at UCLA on May 25, 2016.
    • JFA introduced the new exhibits to supporters through three Impact Reports: 
  • Fundraising Goal: $38,000
  • Progress: $16,570
    • Ten supporters have given a total of $16,570 to this fund since December 1, 2015-Nov. 30, 2016.  
    • In 2016, one supporter gave an $8,000 gift, another gave a $2500 gift, and another gave a $1000 gift to this fund.
    • In 2015, two supporters each gave a $1000 gift to this fund.

  • Detail
    • Large-Format Vinyl-and-Aluminum-Pipe Exhibits: By March 15, 2016, create two new exhibits which are similar in size to the original JFA Exhibit but are very different in content.  The size will be 12 feet high by 20 feet wide to facilitate easier/quicker set-up and take-down with fewer people.  Even still, they will be large enough to make them the talk of the campus (or at least, to draw many students to talk).
      • $17,000
        • $3,600 (design)
        • $3,600 (exhibit printing)
        • $9,800 (pipe, Hollander fittings)
      • Contact Steve Wagner for additional detail.
    • Brochures: Because it has been so helpful to our one-to-one conversations over the years, we’ll continue to use the original JFA Exhibit Brochure (2000) with the new exhibits.  We probably will print new addendum brochures to support, explain, and augment some, if not all, of the new content, but in smaller quantities at first.
      • $1000 for a limited print run of 5000 4-page brochures
    • Training Exhibits (also for use in conference exhibitor areas and in church foyers): None planned for 2016.  To save money and time (in order to focus on the large-format signs), we’ll use PowerPoint versions for our initial training sessions on the new signs for 2015.  See 2016 for more on this.
    • Kiosk Versions: None planned for 2016.
    • Transportation: Rental Trucks (approximately 8 outings)
      •  $20,000
