EASLING POOL: A UNIQUE COMMUNITY-PUBLIC-NONPROFIT PARTNERSHIP

The Friends of Easling Pool, a local citizen-driven, Michigan nonprofit organization, is conducting this campaign to renovate the pool.

A public facility held by Grand Traverse County, the pool is managed by the Grand Traverse Bay YMCA under formal agreement with the county.  Known as the Central Y, it includes a full wellness/fitness center.

Y members pay a rate based on their household income. Daily passes are available.  West Y members also use the Central Y.

The fiduciary for the campaign is Grand Traverse County, which is holding contributions for the pool's renovation in a dedicated and legally segregated fund.  Gifts are deductible for federal tax purposes under Internal Revenue Code Section 170 c (1).
