LANSING, Mich. — Scott and Nicole McIntosh are donating $100,000 to the Y campaign for a contemporary new building in Jackson. Scott, the Vice President of Tax for Consumers Energy, also serves as a YMCA board member and chair of the capital campaign.
“We’re big fans of what’s going on downtown with the rebirth of Jackson, and we see the Y as being a catalyst for collaboration and positive change,” said Scott of the city’s new restaurants, housing and development projects. “I love the Y and the great things that are going on, but even bigger than that I see the new Y being a big part of the continued transformation downtown.”
In January, the Consumers Energy Foundation announced a matching capital campaign grant of up to $3 million. The McIntosh family gift counts toward that match, which is currently over $2.2 million.
The Jackson YMCA is fundraising to replace its nearly 60-year-old building. So far, the organization has raised more than $18 million in contributions and pledges.
