In January 0f 2017, Froedtert Hospital announced they will be the lead investor in a new larger facility, providing $6 million towards a new Kathy's House.
The Kathy's House Board of Directors recently adopted a goal of raising at least an additional $3 million to cover additional guest amenities and increased operating costs.
Baseline construction costs were originally estimated at $9 million. As we now engaged an architect and builder, today we have a more cost estimated of what it will take to build a new house. This includes adding certain features which will make the new Kathy's House feel like "a home away from home" for our guests such as a skylight, large fireplace, outdoor covered patio, walking path and gazebo. We will also face additional operational costs as a result of increasing guest rooms from 18 to 24. These costs include, but certainly are not limited to, utilities, laundry services, insurance and staffing.
As a close friend, we ask your assistance in taking the first steps to a new Kathy's House, raising $3 million
In addition, we will include your contribution on the Naming Wall we are planning inside the new House.
