Momentum 2022′s ongoing capital campaign has raised $6.18 million of its $6.3 million goal in private donations from local investors.
Kayla Bitler, Momentum 2022 strategic coordinator for Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce and GO Topeka, said Thursday she expects the campaign to exceed its goal.
“We are almost there,” she told Downtown Topeka Rotary Club members at a luncheon in the Kansas Expocentre’s Maner Conference Centre. “We have over $1 million in pending investments and we also have about another 100 names that we have added to the list of individuals to approach for funding.”
She acknowledged it’s “kind of hard” to describe Momentum 2022 in a nutshell. It’s definition is a “holistic economic development strategy for Topeka and Shawnee County.”
