LOUDONVILLE -- The Mohican Area Community Fund has officially begun its 2019 Have A Mohican Heart campaign, Co-President Matt Young announced this week.
"The MACF has once again set a goal for $90,000 to distribute to over 30 local beneficiaries,” Young said. “The campaign accepts tax deductible donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations around the Mohican Area. Employees of participating companies can also set up payroll deduction to make ongoing donations to the MACF.”
Locals will also see canisters around at local businesses for the MACF’s Every Penny Counts campaign. The students of the Loudonville-Perrysville School District participate in this campaign, where the top donating classes from each building win a pizza party, Young added.
“Several events hosted throughout the year also provide an opportunity to raise funds,” Young continued. “Another Comedy Night has been set for Saturday, November 2, 2019 at Loudon Post 257 of the American Legion in Loudonville after the success of last year’s Comedy Night, held at Landoll’s Castle.
You can also find the MACF participating in other events around the area. The MACF has recently implemented its monthly “Restaurant Run,” where one local restaurant per month donates a percentage of their income to MACF on a certain day. Dates and times can be found on MACF’s web page.
For those that shop online, you can use Amazon Smile and name MACF as your beneficiary. A portion of your purchase will then go to support MACF.
The campaign will reach its end during the spring of 2020, when the MACF will allocate the funds raised, Young said. Grant Applications will be posted at that time. Since 2009, the MACF has given over $700,000 locally, according to records of fund Treasurer Erin Frankford.
Also serving on the MACF Board of Directors are President Jane Stoops; Vice-President Wende Lance; and Secretary Jennifer Portz.
