Businesses Raise More Than $5.9 Million To Go To Poverello Center

Posted: Updated:
MIS -

Several businesses have secured almost $6 million to support the new Poverello Center on Broadway.

The Pov launched a fundraising campaign last year to help cover construction costs of the new building, but additional finances are needed to run the center. Financing consulting company, Montana MDC and U.S. Bank were able to raise $5.9 million to cover the operating costs of the Pov. The money was raised through the state program, New Market Tax Credits, which uses private investments to raise money for low income areas.

The ground breaking for the Pov's new 21,000 square-foot facility took place last week.
