Eagle Point Software Corporation Donates Software and Services to Crazy Horse Memorial

$33,000 donation enables Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation to receive matching grant DUBUQUE, Iowa, September 16, 2008 - Since 1996, Eagle Point Software has been instrumental in providing design and surveying software used by engineers at Crazy Horse Memorial. Each year, Eagle Point donates their software and services to support the mountain crew with the continued work on the mountainous sculpture. This year, thanks to the $5 million Sanford Challenge Grant, Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation was able to take advantage of Eagle Point's donation in a new way. The $5 million Sanford Challenge Grant given by the T. Denny Sandford foundation in December 2007 matches 100% of every dollar donated to work on the mountain, effectively doubling a donor's gift. The net result of this matching gift will be $10 million dollars that is to be used to accelerate the progress on the mountain. The grant is the single largest contribution in the project's 60-year history. Work on the mountain is also financed through admission fees, donations and gifts-in-kind. "We have been using Eagle Point as a link between surveying and AutoCAD to guide our work on the mountain," explains Rich Barry, an engineer at Crazy Horse Memorial. "The grant is a significant infusion of resources that allows us to accelerate work on the mountain and enables us to focus more resources on the engineering required to insure that we capture sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski's artistic intent in the mountain." The first $2 million of the match has already been raised, giving the foundation a strong start. Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation has until October 1, 2010 to raise the remaining $4 million. Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation receives the matching grant money in $1 million increments, and can accept gifts-in-kind, such as equipment for the mountain.
