Montezuma Community Development
Fundraising Campaign Underway
Montezuma Community Development has officially launched the 2012-2013 community fundraising campaign to support the work of the public-private organization. In the coming days, all Montezuma postal customers will be receiving a brochure and an explanation of funding goals for the year's operating budget and planned private investment.
The operating budget supports our ability to pay staff, obtain needed resources for growth, and provide community outreach. Contributors also have an opportunity to partner in private investment for community beautification, downtown revitalization and community services.
Three options are available for contributing to this important effort in Montezuma: 1) Return the enrollment form with a one-time contribution and check made payable to Montezuma Community Development. 2) Return the enrollment form and voided check to sign-up for a budget option deducted from a checking or savings account. 3) Donate online by clicking the "DONATE" button at the top right corner of this blog, then set up a budget plan or come back often and donate as you are able. All contributions will be tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
We wish to thank those who have participated in our efforts this year through financial and in-kind support of our operating budget, marketing and back office help, and for community beautification. We could not have gotten started without you!
