Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. –Solarus is very excited to make a contribution of $5,000 along with a matching $5,000 from CoBank’s Sharing Success matching grant program to South Wood County YMCA for a total contribution of $10,000.
CoBank’s program matches donations to nonprofit organizations in communities that their customers serve. “We continue to believe that the best way for CoBank to make a meaningful impact of corporate citizenship is to partner with our customers. Sharing Success enables CoBank to leverage the local knowledge and expertise and provide assistance to causes that our customers care deeply about,” said Bob Engel, CoBank’s Chief Executive Officer.
“We are overwhelmed and thankful for the generosity of CoBank and Solarus’ gift to the Y. These funds will be instrumental in the assistance of updating our organization’s growing technology needs as well as supporting the Y’s overall cause of strengthening community,” said Bret Salscheider, South Wood County YMCA CEO.
This is the third consecutive year Solarus has received the CoBank Sharing Success grant. Last year’s recipient was the Tribune Building project and the prior year went to the Boys and Girls Club of Wisconsin Rapids area.
