The IGNITE DAVIE partners continue to move toward the goal of raising a $3 million endowment for the college promise program.

“The Dec. 31 self-imposed deadline is quickly approaching and there is approximately $200,000 left to raise,” said Jane Simpson, president and CEO of the Davie Community Foundation.

In November, senior adults are getting involved in the campaign. Any senior who makes a donation to IGNITE DAVIE by Nov. 22 will have their name displayed on a graduation cap in the Senior Center.

Simpson kicked off the fundraiser with senior adults by serving as the guest caller for bingo. Jeff Wallace, superintendent of Davie County Schools, shared a few words about the importance of IGNITE DAVIE in educating Davie students and the games began.

Simpson also provided some additional prizes to the delight of the winners. The caps are on display and there is plenty of room for more.

Any senior adult interested in making a donation may do so at the Davie County Senior Center, give online at, or by mailing a check payable to Davie Community Foundation and sending it to PO Box 546, Mocksville, NC 27028.
