Jackson Y achieves $25M capital campaign goal
$25 Million Y Capital Campaign — largest-ever in Michigan — wraps up public phase.
JACKSON, Mich. (WILX) - Monday the Jackson YMCA announced it has obtained an additional $3 million in funding in its campaign for a new downtown building.
For the past year, YMCA leaders worked alongside local and national leaders such as Sen. Debbi Stabenow, to secure federal funding. The $3 million puts the YMCA over its original $25 million goal. The federal funding for the Jackson location is among the largest to be awarded to a YMCA.
“We are thankful for the advocacy and effort provided by an inspiring cross-section of local, state, and national officials to help the Y secure this funding,” said Jackson YMCA CEO Shawna Tello. “The fact that the dollar amount raised in our campaign is the largest-ever for a YMCA in Michigan stands as a testament to the people and potential of Jackson.”
Funding for the Jackson YMCA and other Ys across the country was included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act.
