The partners of the Save the Block campaign are excited to announce the successful completion the Jackson Hole Land Trust’s Million Dollar May challenge.
At the Save the Block’s first Summer Concert Series on Wednesday evening, a lively crowd cheered as project partners announced the good news. The goal was met: over 1,500 gifts were secured in the month of May, resulting in an anonymous local family contributing their pledged $1,000,000 match to the campaign.
As of May 30, 2019, partners celebrated nearly 2,000 gifts for a total of $2,150,000 raised in the campaign to preserve the greenspace and historic character of the Genevieve Block, tucked into the busy corner of Broadway and Willow in Downtown Jackson, WY. With the inclusion of the Million Dollar May match, the project remains hopeful, nearing the ultimate goal of $8 million dollars. The Save the Block project’s fundraising deadline is August 4, 2019.
