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.

 Vega Productions

Our Featured “Small but Mighty” Minnesota Nonprofit

Vega Productions partners with Minnesota Music Educators and Minnesota Public Radio in their “Play it Forward” musical instrument drive to help ensure all Minnesota kids have access to musical instruments in their school.  “Every student should have access to music in school. Music education let’s kids make a joyful noise during the school day, but it also helps them academically, develops social skills and fosters community. With less funding for arts education, it’s now harder for schools to have extra instruments to lend students whose families can’t afford to rent or buy one.” Vega Productions helps make music education possible for ALL students by making it easy to donate used instruments and get them into the hands of the Minnesota kids who need them.  Learn more how you can help by donating a used musical instrument here
