Supporting Small but Mighty Local Nonprofits
Every box purchased benefits a Minnesota nonprofit
Each season we will be focusing on small but mighty nonprofits to help raise awareness of the great work they are doing in our state, and provide them with some much needed financial support through the sale of each You Betcha! Box.
Nonprofits are facing uncertainty in their funding future as tax laws change and there is more competition for philanthropic dollars. This is especially true for smaller, community based groups. These organizations may be small, but the impact they make on our State’s quality of life is mighty. We will incorporate mechanisms for our nonprofits to remain viable as so many Minnesotans benefit from them through innovating fundraising campaigns and sharing a portion of the proceeds on every box sold.
