The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum Foundation says the project should be finished in 2020 and not 2019 as originally planned.
As of now, the project already has more than 15 million dollars, but is ways away from the 60 million dollar cost of the entire project.
The foundation hired a marketing firm last week out of Ohio called Fahlgren-Mortine to handle fundraising, as they look to ramp up their fundraising initiative to find donors across the country.
Foundation board member Vicky Steiner says fundraising is in its beginning stages, but the future is looking bright for the library.
“The decisions we made last week are going to create some momentum and the project actually is really starting to move because once you have professional staff in place, they can really take you to places that you weren’t able to go before.”
The foundation is looking for people, who want to have a cottonwood tree planted on the project site in whose ever name they choose, with a donation of 1,000 dollars.
It will be a part of the Elkorn Ranch cabin project, which is expected to be finished next spring.
