We continue to make progress on our year-end campaign. Thanks to the generosity of more than 375 donors, we are two-thirds of the way to our goal of raising $70,000 by Dec. 31.
And we’d like to extend a special thank you and welcome to the 104 readers who became members during this drive by making their first-ever donation to MinnPost.
Overall, we have received 378 gifts collectively worth $46,383, requiring us to raise an additional $8,000 to receive the full $25,000 MinnPost Membership Challenge Fund grant.
Any gift in any amount will be matched dollar for dollar, and get us closer to our goal.
Many of those who have already contributed took a moment to tell us why they did. Some recent comments are posted below, with permission.
