MinnPost’s Summer Member Drive successfully surpasses goal

In an impressive final-day surge, MinnPost readers helped us reach our Summer Member Drive goal. Thank you to all those who contributed!

More than 152 MinnPost supporters helped make our Summer Member Drive a success with contributions collectively worth more than $14,000. Of those, 79 were new or re-joining members and 64 became first-time sustaining donors.

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.
