Last Chance to Save the Block

With an early August deadline swiftly approaching, the Save the Block project partners are excited to announce the “Last Chance” challenge to raise the remaining funds for the campaign to save the historic community greenspace in downtown Jackson, Wyoming, which earlier this year was under threat of development from a 90,000 square foot hotel.

Inspired by the community’s enthusiasm, several anonymous donors, led by the local family that has been the lead partner on this project and currently has the property under contract, have joined together to present the community with one final challenge to wrap up all aspects of fundraising just in time for the campaign’s deadline.

The challenge gifts totaling $1 Million are being leveraged for a last chance to Save the Block, under the stipulation that the project receives another 1,500 gifts by August 5, and rounds out the total number of campaign gifts to 5,000 since April 2019.
