The Minnesota Majority conservative advocacy group, which said last week that it needed $20,000 within a week or it would close its doors, said today that donors came through and the immediate crisis is averted.
MM President Dan McGrath said today:
“Over the last several days, we have been receiving a steady stream of mostly small contributions, ranging from $5 to $25 each. I’m pleased to announce that we currently have sufficient funding to meet our immediate obligations.”
The group, which says it espouses “limited government, lower taxes, parental rights, free markets, protecting our borders and a strong national defense,” was a big player in the failed 2012 Voter ID constitutional amendment push.
Despite the respite, McGrath said that long-term, more financial support is needed to continue the group’s work.
“… fundraising has been falling short of goals all year and we will still face the same difficulties moving forward. Organizations like ours rely entirely on voluntary contributions from individuals. If they aren’t coming in, obviously, we can’t operate.”
The group will have a booth at the State Fair, he said.
