November is officially here which means that Minnesota’s biggest giving month has arrived! While Give to the Max Day is on November 18th, we’re dedicating the entire month to MCH’s #GTMD21 campaign, and we have big goals. It will take $20,000 between now and November 30th to ensure that MCH has the resources to launch us into the 2022 legislative session.
We saw huge wins this past year, with historic amounts of funding to ensure safe housing and shelter. By the numbers, we were able to advocate for:
- $116 Million to build and preserve safe and dignified homes
- $100 Million for housing assistance to prevent evictions during the global pandemic
- $26.5 Million for emergency services grants for staffing, shelter operations, and motel vouchers
- $5.5 Million for the Housing Support program aimed at securing housing and basic needs of very low-income seniors and people with disabilities
That means that this past year, MCH led the way to secure $248 Million for our neighbors throughout the state. For every $1 invested in our work, MCH returned $413 to the community. Will you join us with a gift this month?
Donors joining us have given a wide range of gifts– from $5 to $20,000. It will take each community supporter giving at their own personally meaningful level to fund our work and continue to win at the Capitol for neighbors. Thank you for your support, advocacy, and passion for this work. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together!
