Gannett - "A Community Thrives" Wall Rehab Fundraiser

We have an amazing opportunity to raise rehab funds for the commUnity center rear wall – with a big boost from a Gannett Foundation-sponsored grant & fundraising contest. If we all come together & do our part, we can win big!

A Community Thrives is a fundraising contest with grants & matching funds. When we raise our first $3,000, we will receive $2,500 from Gannett Foundation. In addition, we may qualify for a grant of $25,000, $50,000, or even $100,000. We are also competing for a bonus grant of $4,000 for the most unique donors (with different emails) during the week of August 2nd to August 9th. We are depending on your help to win that grant.

HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO HELP:

DONATE

  1. Go to https://acommunitythrives.mightycause.com/organization/Spencer-Pride, click on DONATE, & make a generous gift to rehab the commUnity center’s back wall. This is a must-do project to expand our program space on the second floor. The wall is badly damaged, so this is a BIG repair job.
  2. VERY IMPORTANT! Mark your calendar to donate $5 or more between August 2 at noon & August 9 to help win the contest for most unique donors with a bonus grant of $4,000. Members of your household can boost our total if each donates $5 with a different email address.
