The City of Madison, Trilogy Health Services, and the Community Foundation of Madison & Jefferson County announced today that Trilogy Health Services has pledged $40,000 toward the “Stellar Madison Fund” at the Community Foundation.
The Stellar Madison Fund will be used to assist in bringing all of the Stellar projects to completion. Some of the projects included in the Stellar plan include finishing the Madison Connector trail, improving local parks, rehabilitating historic buildings like the Cotton Mill, and repairing and replacing sidewalks. The funds pledged and given to the Stellar Madison Fund at the Community Foundation will be split 65/35, with 65% of pledged funds going to projects immediately, while 35% will go toward a long-term fund to sustain the projects long into the future.
Andra Bladen, Trilogy Health Services Divisional Vice President stated, “We love the residents
and city of Madison. Supporting Stellar Community is another opportunity for Trilogy Health Services,
River Terrace Health Campus, and Thornton Terrace Health Campus to show our commitment to service to others. We are pleased to donate financially, as well as encourage our greatest resource – our employees – to volunteer throughout Madison. We look forward to the transformation that the Stellar Community projects will have in Madison.” Trilogy Health Services has two locations in Jefferson County and a total of 107 locations across four states.
“I am so grateful for Trilogy’s commitment to our community. They stepped up to the plate to
create a beautiful facility in our downtown and have been community-minded at every step of the way. I
can’t say enough to thank Trilogy for their investment of resources, and I look forward to working with
them through a number of Stellar projects to take Madison to the next level,” said Mayor Damon Welch.
Other financial pledges will be announced in the coming weeks. Businesses and individuals that are interested in supporting the Stellar Madison Fund can contact Nicole Schell or Andrew Forrester at
the Mayor’s Office or Bill Barnes at the Community Foundation. Madison was designated as a Stellar
Community in October. More information about Stellar can be found at www.stellarmadison.org.
