Your YMCA Centre of Community Capital Campaign volunteers have been working hard to edge the campaign closer to its goal. As of May 31, 2017, the campaign had officially raised $7,976,059 of our $9,000,000 million goal, with even more good news developing since then. At this point, all other funding sources for the entire project are in place. Our last big job is to finish off this last stretch of the Capital Campaign!
The Campaign Cabinet is focused on a handful of remaining gifts aimed at bumping our total up further towards the finish line, but we’re not there yet. Our fundraising volunteers are focusing tightly on a final group of asks and bringing open major gift discussions to closure.
Gift announcements have also started with a $250,000 gift from Lindsay Construction and a $125,000 from RBC announced over the past month. Stay tuned for more celebrations of our committed community builders and donors. We have a lot of good news to share with you in the coming months!
Be on the look out for an awareness campaign during the summer highlighting all areas of our YMCA, with our Community Campaign launch following in the fall. In the meantime, the Community Campaign is on the lookout for volunteers to help in all aspects of the campaign – from fundraising, to writing content, to helping with events. Please contact us if you, or someone you know wants to help!
Thank you once again for your support and inspiration as a generous donor and friend of the YMCA!
