Nexus Matching Funds Campaign -- $100,000 Goal

Nexus Recovery Center is seeking new community support to raise $100,000 to leverage two recent gifts from local foundations.  The Meadows Foundation granted $200,000 to Nexus for programs and services, and of that funding – $50,000 must come from new donors.  In addition, Hoblitzelle Foundation granted Nexus with $50,000 for their capital campaign to provide new bathrooms and services in the main Building A, that houses admissions, reception and counseling rooms for clients. However a match challenge has been issued – and it must come from a new funder source – the donor could double their investment in Nexus and the community.

In an open letter, Nexus explains their needs are real and they have served 11% more women and children this year that last year, providing vital and life saving proven services to some 2,263 clients and their children who are in our programs.

The Ivy's have been involved with Nexus for years through the Women's Auxiliary. Linda serves on the Nexus Board, and they both served as Chairs of the 2013 Annual Appeal.

Nexus is pleased to report new partnerships with Executives in Action, The Real Estate Council, Goldman Sachs, The Celanese Foundation, and Regions Bank.
