Capital Campaign underway at Progress!
Progress is pleased to announce the launch of a Capital Campaign to raise funds for an additional building on campus. The current administrative offices of Progress house twice the number of people they were originally designed for. Our employment programs are growing at an exciting rate, but we currently have no space for job skills training, job interview practice areas, and new staff members needed to help more people. These promising programs are expanding steadily, but the lack of space is holding them back.
We are extremely grateful to HCA for kicking off the campaign with a $300,000 gift! We are also deeply appreciative to the Kharis Foundation, the Frist Foundation, the Memorial Foundation, the Cal Turner Family Foundation, the Phillips Foundation and an anonymous donor for their leadership gifts. The Progress board has donated a total of $30,383 and the Progress staff has pledged a total of $24,300. As we publicly kick off the campaign, we have raised in cash and pledges a total of $860,000. Our goal however, is $1,000,000, which is a real stretch for Progress, and we would like to break ground this summer! To do this, we need your help.
We ask you to please consider a generous gift to our expansion project. Your gift will change lives of many people with disabilities and seniors, long into the future. There are many easy ways to make a gift that will make wishes come true and there are numerous naming rights available. You will be hearing much more about this in the coming weeks and months. Should you like more information about this or would like to talk about gift options, Director of Development, Kelly O’Connor would love to speak with you! Her direct line is 615.577.4726 or K.O’Connor@progress-inc.org. Alternatively, you may make a gift online via the link below. Please indicate in the notes area that your gift is for the capital campaign, and it will be designated as such. Thank you for your support!
