San Angelo YMCA Receives $600,000 Challenge Grant


SAN ANGELO, TX -- This week the YMCA of San Angelo announced it will be receiving a $600,000.00 challenge grant for its “The Big Picture” Capital Campaign.

In order to receive the funds, the YMCA will be required to raise an additional $589,000.00 by April 13, 2022. With this grant, the YMCA will be well on its way to reaching its goal, but support from other community leaders and funders is still needed.

These funds will be used for the renovation of the property located at 2833 College Hills Boulevard, which will become an expansion of the Little Explorer’s Preschool Program.

The preschool program serves children ages 3-5 and currently accommodates 30 children, but has a wait-list that averages 75 children and a one-year wait. This expansion will allow the Y to expand its services, impact more families and provide more jobs for the community. The Y plans to complete the project and open the new facility by the Fall of 2022.

"The support we have received from foundations like the Mabee Foundation is a testament to our good work," said Executive Director Angel Flores."Receiving their generous support has allowed us to maintain the momentum in our fundraising efforts. We are forever grateful.”
