Minneapolis continues to rally behind us! A major gift as we get closer to breaking ground on the V3 Center

We’ve got a major update and a million reasons to smile. V3 continues to raise funds and we are getting much closer to beginning construction on the V3 Center; a state-of-the-art facility where the community can gather and grow together through wellness and fitness opportunities. The V3 Center will provide business incubator space, education support, and spaces for community meetings.

Our organization is humbled, proud, and overwhelmed by the generosity of the team behind the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation Fund of the Minneapolis Foundation, which provided us with a $1,000,000 gift. It has been amazing to see continued community support, which really lets us know we’re undertaking crucial work on behalf of our community, for everyone in Minneapolis. 

“This donation will increase equity, reverse longstanding disparities, and build hope,” said Erika L. Binger, V3 coach, executive director, and founder. 

“The momentum we have through our continued community outreach, engagement, and education has been tremendously uplifting. Meeting with the community and seeing how important our mission really is continuing to energize our team,” said Malik Rucker, V3’s director of strategic partnerships and community engagement.

We’ll keep you updated on our fundraising progress as the team continues to push toward breaking ground at Plymouth and Lyndale Avenues North. 2022 will be the year we put shovels in the ground, building our community center, and providing life-changing swim lessons to tackle drowning disparities and health/wellness inequities!
