Sam Baisden Memorial Sports Field – Cornerstone

Sam Baisden Memorial Sports Field – Cornerstone

$30,000 Matching Grant Offered!

Sam Baisden, age 25, died in Feb 2018 of a tragic accident at his home in Kingwood, TX. He was the son of Barry and Leslie Baisden of Kingwood, and the brother of Jacob. Barry previously served as the US Board Chairman of Naomi’s Village from 2015 – 2017. Sam was the nephew of Naomi’s Village Founders Bob and Julie Mendonsa. Sam starred in high school baseball and ran track in Kingwood.  His family has decided to construct and dedicate a sports field with a track at our school to honor his memory. A $30,000 matching donation has just been offered to help us reach the total cost of $218,000. We had previously raised $158,000 for this need. All new donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, until a total of $60,000 is reached. Your gift will help with excavation, grading, field surface preparation, planting of grass, installation of running track, construction of concrete bleachers, purchase and installation of soccer goals, and signage.

Mendonsa Family House

Mendonsa Family House

A match of $38,500 (50%) has been offered towards the main house construction cost of $77,000

In fall 2017, Bob and Julie Mendonsa became empty nesters when Will joined Emily in the US for college. This means they no longer have students attending Rift Valley Academy and thus they can move closer to their daily lives at Naomi's Village and Cornerstone Preparatory Academy.

Two years ago, Naomi's Village purchased a 1/8-acre plot of land just down the road from its main property, for the purpose of building a family house.

The total cost of this house is estimated at $35/sq. ft = $77,000 + $8,000 estimated for a perimeter wall = $85,000 total.

**A match of $38,500 (50%) has been offered towards the main house construction cost of $77,000. This means that every dollar donated will be matched up to that amount!

Please give today to help the Mendonsas move closer to their beloved kids at Naomi's Village, where they will be free to spend more hours with them in the evening and on weekends.
