To match and be eligible for the expected CIB grant, financial backing was needed. A plan was formulated for a gigantic fund-raising project. As plans evolved, Clair and Winona Erickson consented to supervise this effort. They recruited sub-chairpersons and assigned them people to contact. These names were taken from an extensive prepared list of possible contribu-tors Contributions ranging from $5 to $5,000 were accepted from approximately one hundred fifty residents and former residents of Ephraim City. The names of these donors are on a plaque in the foyer of the annex of the Co-op Almost $50,000 was collected, which was the amount needed to obtain the grants from CIB.4 Money was not the only issue. As work progressed on the buildings, problems which had not been forseen had to be solved These included whether to lay new floors or refinish the old ones, where to put the elevator and walkways, how to use the space in the annex, how to arrange the kitchen and offices, and what to do about the blinds, rugs, and so forth.
