Nike Foundation Donates $5M For Athletic Facility at Obama Center

The Nike Foundation is donating five-million-dollars to the Obama Foundation to help build an athletic and recreational facility at the proposed Obama Presidential Center. The center is expected to be a sprawling campus in Jackson Park. It will have buildings housing offices, meeting spaces for conferences and workshops, a public library branch and recreation areas. The Obama Foundation has received city approval for the center, but it is currently engaging in a federal review process that has to be completed before construction can begin.
