Priscilla'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!
raised by 5 people
Hello, my name is Priscilla Maffet, I'm a member of the Board of Directors of the Minnesota Second Chance Coalition.
If you are here I would like to invite you to be a change-maker by joining to my campaign to support the MNSCC's 2022 GTMD fundraising efforts, either through a donation or by sharing this campaign with people you think might make sense of it.
Many studies have shown that community support is a fundamental part of the social reintegration process. If we really want to be agents of change and contribute to a more equitable society, this is an opportunity to do so.
The funds raised this 2022 by the MNSCC in the GTMD will be allocated to a microgrants program to help people who are in the reentry process to reinstate their driver's licenses, because we know that paying to reinstate a license can be an impossible barrier for someone who is trying to re-establish themselves.
Driver's license suspensions due to an inability to pay fines and fees has detrimental effects on a person's reentry, especially on their ability to obtain and maintain employment.
And that’s where Minnesota Second Chance Coalition has stepped in. Through MNSCC'S Driver’s License Reinstatement Microgrant Program, they 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!
