YMCA of Greater Charlotte is thrilled to be among a distinguished group of organizations that has received a generous donation from MacKenzie Scott. We are humbled and thankful that our work – and our potential to do even more impactful work in our community – has been recognized by a prolific global philanthropist and champion for issues related to racial equity, gender equity, upward mobility and pandemic response. We take the responsibility that comes with this donation very seriously, and are excited to evaluate opportunities and outline important, meaningful and tangible work that we are charged with doing as a result of being named a recipient. When we have more definitive plans, we will be happy to share them with our community.
