Mackenzie Scott Donates to the YMCA of Greater Montgomery

Our YMCA of Greater Montgomery has been selected to receive a generous charitable donation from Mackenzie Scott, a global philanthropist.

In a post Mackenzie Scott stated; “I asked a team of advisors to help me accelerate my 2020 giving through immediate support to people suffering the economic effects of the crisis.

They took a data-driven approach to identifying organizations with strong leadership teams and results, with special attention to those operating in communities facing high projected food insecurity, high measures of racial inequity, high local poverty rates, and low access to philanthropic capital.

The result over the last four months has been over $4billion in gifts to 384 organizations across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C. Some are filling basic needs: food banks, emergency relief funds, and support services for those most vulnerable”.

“To be selected as one of 384 organizations to receive such a generous donation is a true testament to our impact through the programs we provide, our dedicated staff who work tirelessly to serve everyone who enters our doors and our members who stayed with the Y through the pandemic.” – Gary Cobbs, President/CEO YMCA of Greater Montgomery
