Launching We are Germantown: Our campaign to raise $30,000!
We are launching an important fundraising campaign as we enter an exciting new phase of our work. We started three years ago with no money and a group of passionate volunteers… then we raised enough money to hire our first-ever Executive Director in 2014. And NOW, we are about to bring on a full-time commercial corridor manager who will lead our efforts to make Germantown a better place to visit and shop.
Our organization is growing, our funds are growing; however, many of our city grants are reimbursable- meaning that we need to build up our reserves to cover the time between payments. We are so excited about this positive momentum, and we need your help to keep it going!
We already started with over $6000 committed and 100% of Board of Directors participation, and we need YOU to invest along with us in Germantown’s future. We need to raise $30,000 in the next 6 weeks. During this time, we’re going to share stories of our work, spotlighting how we are community, creative, entrepreneurial, and energized! We’re going to share how We are Germantown– and how you are too!
To kick off our campaign, we have a great community supporter, Howard Treatman, who has offered to match the first $2500 raised from October 15-October 29th! We are so grateful for this generosity and know that Germantown is up to the challenge!
Donate here! Tell people about our work! Share our campaign on social media!
Thank you for helping to make Germantown even more amazing!
