“Give to the Max Day” is Minnesota’s statewide day of giving, and this will be PACF’s 10th consecutive year of participation. First State Bank of Fountain and F&M Community Bank will contribute matching funds. The first $1,000 donated by Fountain residents and businesses will be matched by the First State Bank of Fountain. F&M Community Bank and Dan Christianson will match all donations $0.50 per $1.
PACF is organized as an endowed designated fund of the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation. All Give to the Max donations will go directly into the endowment. The endowment fund and earnings are used locally for community projects and programs. In the past three years, donations have allowed the PACF to disperse over $60,000 to a variety of community projects.
You may donate for Give to the Max Day online on November 18 at smifoundation.org/donations/preston-area-community-foundation/.
Early and in-person donations will be accepted between now and November 18 at F&M Community Bank in Preston and First State Bank of Fountain. Your checks will be processed on November 18 to take advantage of matching incentives.
