It’s June, and as usual, the legislative session isn’t really over. Often it’s a special session that is keeping us busy. This year it is unallotment. But whatever it is, we are continuing to provide our audience with accurate and timely information on public policy issues. And, from the feedback we are getting, many of you find our blog to be an indispensable guide to what’s going on in the tax and budget world.
But now we have to ask for a little something back. The Minnesota Budget Project is a nonprofit, and we get our funding largely from foundations and our parent organization, the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. While we have strong and loyal support from these sources, times are tough and resources are down.
So, if you’ve found our blog to be helpful (or any of the other work of the Minnesota Budget Project for that matter) – you can show how much you appreciate it by making a donation. It’s as simple as that. Please donate – a little, a lot, whatever. It’s tax-deductible.
But here’s the great thing. Obviously, a donation provides us with additional resources to do our work (thank you!). However, your response to this fundraising appeal also demonstrates to foundations that we are providing a service that people value – and it could help us raise more money from other sources. The gift that keeps on giving.
We have a lot of fun writing this blog – so let me say thanks. Thanks for reading our blog and thanks for considering a contribution to support our work.
By the way – if you are relatively new to the blog, don’t worry, we rarely fundraise through the blog. Twice a year, tops.
