Connect-two-culture is celebrating a bit of a fundraising win after the closure of it's crowdfunding campaign.
The group is raising money to build the cornell complex on seventh street in joplin and now thanks to folks in the community -- they're more than 20-thousand dollars closer to their goal.
They launched the crowdfunding campaign back in june.
They had expected to raise just five-thousand dollars -- with an anonymous donor matching those funds.
They quickly surpassed that goal -- and the donor decided they would not only match the five-thousand dollar goal -- but every dollar donated after it.
Connect2culture has collected more than 14-million dollars of it's overall goal of 16-million dollars to build the cornell complex.
