We are thrilled to announce a new $25,000 challenge grant that will match dollar for dollar any new donations to MinnPost during our year-end membership drive!
Not counting the match, to date we have received 252 contributions collectively worth $29,429, putting us well on the way to reaching our campaign goals of raising $70,000 and setting a new membership record.
The match is being provided by MinnPost board members, via our Membership Challenge Fund, to encourage those who haven’t yet chipped in to make a donation and keep our campaign momentum going.
We are grateful for all the contributions we have received so far, and the kind words that have accompanied many of them.
