Fund Development in 2023
After a two-year hiatus, the Strengthening Service Breakfast was held October 27, 2022 at Mount Zion Temple. This year’s fundraising breakfast was filled with friends and supporters of MAVA. We had over 140 people attend! It was so great to see everyone in person. The breakfast program had all of us laughing and in tears with inspiring stories from Friends & Co., ACLU-MN, and CLUES. Thank you to our donors, board members, table captains, and volunteers! We raised over $27,000.00 that morning, meaning not only did MAVA overachieve its fundraising goal for 2022, but it was also the most raised from MAVA’s Strengthening Service Breakfast to-date. We greatly appreciate all of the support we received this year! You’ll learn more about the breakdown of our fundraising efforts in our 2022 Annual Report.
MAVA will be seeking a new Membership and Fund Development Director in 2023. I have accepted a new position at the Washburn Center for Children as the Associate Director for Individual Giving and start the second week in January. I am not going away completely and will support MAVA until the position is filled. It’s been a pleasure to serve MAVA and its members over the past 4 and a half years. I enjoyed learning about non-profits in Minnesota and deeply appreciate all of the hard work each of you does. I also gained friends at MAVA - true and lasting friendships. I am so grateful to MAVA, my colleagues, and the members, volunteers, donors, and supporters. Thank you!
What a year it has been for Membership and Fund Development! Thank you! We have a lot of great networking opportunities and events planned for 2023! See you in the New Year!
