An anonymous $200,000 challenge gift pushed Phase 2 of the Door County YMCA’s Capital Campaign for the Northern Door Program Center past the $1 million mark. Each new dollar committed to construct a 3,500-square-foot addition at the Fish Creek facility will be matched up to $200,000.
“We’re optimistic that with this major new commitment to our project we’ll be able to secure the necessary gifts and pledges to begin construction before winter weather arrives,” said Tom Beerntsen, Door County YMCA CEO.
The addition will be constructed on the south side of the existing building, facing Gibraltar Road, and will house a new Lifestyle Center. There will be an additional 1,200 square feet for cardio and strength training equipment and the space in the center of the building will be renovated into multi-purpose rooms.
