ENGINEERING ASSESSMENTS
Engineering assessments in preparation for our Family Center expansion have occurred over the last few months, and will continue next week. The data from these assessments will help inform our construction engineering plans. We anticipate that we will break ground on the expansion midyear 2019!

Since the public launch of our Community Campaign, we are excited to share we have received generous donations totaling more than $313,200 toward our Family Center Expansion Project! More than 100 Y staff have made gifts to the Capital Campaign!

COMMUNITY IS OUR CAUSE

Our community is a wonderful place to live and work, but many of our neighbors struggle with a variety of concerns. The Y is committed to helping all people live better lives.

EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS POINT TO A BRIGHT FUTURE


Dear Friends,

As a nonprofit community institution the Madison Area YMCA provides nearly $700,000 each year in financial assistance to those who would not otherwise be able to participate in the Y’s programs and services. Since opening our doors on Kings Road in 1962, our membership has more than doubled and our YMCA is bursting at the seams with activity.

While we rejoice in this participation and growing membership, we also recognize that our current Family Center needs to be expanded in order to better serve the community now and in the future. To do this, the Board of Directors and Madison Area YMCA management have undertaken a capital campaign to expand and enhance our Y. I am pleased to share the strong progress we have made in this regard.

In January of 2018, we received approval from the Madison Zoning Board of Adjustment to move forward with our Y Family Center expansion plan. I am also delighted to announce that the Board has unanimously approved the $12M project budget. We are finalizing the expansion design with architects and our construction management team this fall, and our plan is to break ground in mid-2019. We have received more than $5.6 million in donations and pledges and are continuing to seek and secure major gifts. The plan is to expand opportunities for giving with a broader community campaign in early 2019. We are proud of our community’s generous giving and excited to continue the momentum. Thank you for helping to make our vision a reality.
