Liberty Lake, WA – The HUB Sports Center (HUB) is pleased to announce a $350,000 grant award from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust (Murdock). This award is allocated to the capital campaign for the purchase of the facility.
With this pledge, the capital campaign is almost 75% of our need at $3.2 million for the purchase of the facility, land and assets with over $2.3 million pledged and received. (The goal is to raise $3.9 million with the additional $700,000 going toward an operating reserve fund to provide for current outreach programs as well as new initiatives.)
Murdock awards grants that help improve the quality of life in the Pacific Northwest and desires to nurture and enrich the educational, spiritual, cultural and social lives of individuals, families and communities. The HUB organization is a great fit for the funding priorities of Murdock.
“We are thrilled to receive this grant. The Murdock Trust carefully vets its applicants before making award decisions. We appreciate their vote of confidence in the HUB’s ability to be a positive impact in this community and the necessity of this facility for future generations.” Phil Champlin – Executive Director.
The capital campaign for the HUB Sports Center is currently active. Opportunities to participate can be found at: www.SavetheHUB.org.
