I would like to start by thanking everyone who has supported Buffalo County Community Partners in our nearly 20 years of building a healthier Buffalo County. Whether you’ve made a donation, volunteered your time, helped spread our message, given us words of encouragement, or supported us in any way, thank you.
This year, we have seen some of our biggest events, with an amazing outpour of community volunteers and participants. Seeing so many people get involved is what makes Community Partners so special.
As we begin our 2013 Annual Fund Campaign, I wanted to remind our supporters that 100% of donations pledged to us are used to serve Buffalo County residents, and less than 10% of those donations go towards administrative costs. In addition, for every dollar donated to our campaign, $6 is raised in matching grant funding. The money we raise truly goes so far.
Again, I want to thank you all. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing how much support we have from this amazing community.
