Eliot's Fundraiser for MNSCC Microgrants
A nonprofit fundraiser supportingMinnesota Second Chance Coalition
Help me reinstate driver's licenses for those impacted by the criminal legal system!
20 donor goal
Greetings friends. family and everyone who supports second chances! Many of you are aware of my active involvement with the Minnesota Second Chance Coalition. It is a relatively small organization that annually has a BIG impact in in bringing about a more equitable justice system in Minnesota. Please support our effort to help people get out from under the burdens of fines and fees. Thanks for whatever amount you can contribute!
Driver’s license suspensions due to an inability to pay fines and fees affect thousands of Minnesotans, who can’t legally drive to work, school, or medical appointments, let alone the grocery store. For those who have been incarcerated, a suspended driver’s license has detrimental effects on a person’s reentry, especially on their ability to get and maintain employment. Paying to reinstate a license can be an impossible barrier for someone who is trying to re-establish themselves.
And that’s where our organization has stepped up. Through our Driver’s License Reinstatement Microgrant Program, we offer small microgrants to pay for traffic fines and fees for individuals impacted by the criminal legal system so that awardees can reinstate their driver's license on their road to independence.
But we need your help! During Give to the Max, we need to raise $15,000 in order to continue and EXPAND this program. We hope you will partner with us to have a direct, immediate, and lasting impact on the lives of our awardees. Please give what you can!
Even better, we have some exciting matches! An anonymous donor has pledged to match your gift dollar for dollar up to $5,000 AND our own Board President Trace Ludewig has pledged to match every gift up to $3,000! That means that all gifts up to $3,000 will be TRIPLED and from $3,000-$5,000 will be DOUBLED. Multiply your impact when you give by midnight on November 17th!
Thank you so much for your support!
