Give to the Max! Your Donation Shares in $500,000 Match on November 17

Tomorrow, November 17, beginning at 8 am and continuing for 24 hours, contribute to Parents United at GiveMN.org using your credit card and your gift will be increased by sharing in a $500,000 match from The Saint Paul Foundation, Minneapolis Foundation and Bush Foundation. No transaction fees will be charged, so 100% comes to Parents United! Make your gift go even further!
Parents United for Public Schools is the resource parents and citizens can depend on to track complex education issues at the Capitol, provide accurate and understandable analysis, and deliver to our elected officials a coordinated and powerful message from the consumers of public education – the children, their families and the communities in which they live. We’re not partisan, but we are passionate about what’s right for kids.

Like most non-profits, we operate on a lean budget, but unlike many non-profits fully half of our annual revenue comes from individuals like you. I hope you count on us to provide information you can rely on. A gift from you will help us share that information with many others and if you give tomorrow that gift will go further!!

The current recession, bad as it is, will come to an end, but shortsighted policies will do lasting damage. Your tax deductible contribution will help to insure that Minnesota’s children will be well prepared for the future. We believe public education is worth fighting for, but we can’t do it without your help. Give November 17!
