Augusta National leads way for $10M gift to city’s urban neighborhoods
Community leaders say a $10 million gift from Augusta National Golf Club and its corporate partners announced Wednesday will provide a much needed boost to two urban neighborhoods in need of revitalization.
Augusta National's $2.5 million gift, matched by AT&T, Bank of America and IBM, will help build a nonprofit community center known as "The Hub," as well as a new headquarters for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Augusta, on part of a 35-acre tract owned by the Medical College of Georgia Foundation.
The property at the intersection of 15th Street and John C. Calhoun Expressway serves as a gateway to the city's medical district and is an intersection between the city's historic but poverty-stricken Harrisburg and Laney-Walker neighborhoods.
