$3 Million Donation, $3.5 Million Challenge Grant Help Bring Education Access Where It’s Needed Most
Funding from Great Lakes is helping Madison College expand access to higher education and community supports for residents of the city’s underserved South Side. The college’s new South Campus will be constructed in three phases, originally projected for completion in five years. Madison, Wisconsin-based Great Lakes has pledged two grants totaling up to $6.5 million that will allow Madison College to complete the entire complex in a single year. One of them is a challenge grant that will match $3.5 million raised in the community dollar for dollar.
