Our local neighborhood organization, Corcoran Neighborhood Organization (CNO), is one of the most active and effective neighborhood organizations in Minneapolis. CNO (and other neighborhood organizations) have historically been funded primarily through city contracts through the Community Participation Program (CPP) and Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP). This funding covers less than one-fifth of our annual operating budget so in order to maintain high quality and sustainable programs, CNO relies on grants, program and event income, and individual donations to support our strong but lean operations.
The CNO Board of Directors has set a goal to raise $5000 for CNO during our fall annual appeal campaign. We invite you to support our work by making a financial contribution in any amount.
We want to increase the number of CNO donors:
- Give to the Max Day is Nov. 17 this year. We have a $1000 match from a board member and would welcome more matching gifts! Schedule your donation to CNO starting Nov. 1 and help us secure the match and meet our fundraising goals. You can give at https://www.givemn.org/organization/cno
- 25 NEW donors by the end of 2016. Any amount is appreciated - we want to show the city and our funders that Corcoran residents support CNO.
- 100% of our past donors give again - if you have not made your annual donation, please do so before the end of the year! And consider becoming a sustainer if you are not already.
- Add 15 new CNO Sustainers this year! Commit to a monthly contribution in any amount and join our growing list of Corcoran Sustainers (and get a t-shirt as our thanks). If you usually give $25 at the end of the year, consider giving $10 a month instead. Or if you are a first time donor, could you give $10 a month?
All donors get a CNO Organization window decal. Your gift would allow us to continue to do our work to unite neighbors and strengthen our community.
