In a strong final-day push, MinnPost members helped us reach our Spring Member Drive goal. Thank you to all those who contributed! Your gifts will sustain MinnPost’s coverage in 2016.
During the drive, we received 154 contributions collectively worth more than $12,700.
New members propelled us toward our goal. More than 105 households become first-time members this drive. As a result, MinnPost’s member count has grown to 2,705 households.
There’s still time to become a member if you’d like to have your gift contribute to this drive’s success.
Our favorite part of member drives is reading the comments our members leave when they contribute. Here are some of the notes we received in the last days of the campaign, reprinted with permission.
