For Immediate Release:
On behalf of the Sons of Norway Foundation Board of Governors, I want to thank our District 3 lodges and members for their financial support during the ‘We Are The Future’ fundraiser.
You will recall that the first ‘We Are The Future’ fundraiser was in 2020 and the goal was to raise $100,000 for the Foundation between October 2020 (Foundation Month) and January 15, 2021. The total raised was $137,000. Why January 15? To allow for IRA distributions.
Our ‘Together . . . ‘ 2021 goal was to raise $150,000. Again, our lodges and members exceed the goal. As of January 19, the accounting shows that our lodges and members donated $158,276 between October 2021 and January 15, 2022.
A total of 137 lodges in Districts 1 through 6 donated $68,657. In District 3, 22 lodges donated $4,000.
When the final report is completed, we’ll be sharing more information.
So, thanks to all who joined in making the 2021 ‘Together . . . ‘ campaign another success.
Also, scholarship applications are due on March 1. Please check the Sons of Norway website under Foundation for more details.
In addition, check out the Humanitarian Fund Grants for Disaster and Medical Relief. These grants are up to $5,000 for members who have experienced financial loss due to property loss as a result of natural disasters or due to extreme illness or injury. Again, check out the SON website under Foundation.
