GREETINGS LEGIONNAIRES. You may recall that last year we participated in a Scouting Fundraiser that accumulated over $300,000 due to the matching contributions of a very generous philanthropist. Well, that gentleman has offered to repeat his GOOD WILL from 2021.
WE NEED 500 Donors to give at least $5-20 (preferably more) to the cause.
DEADLINE IS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29. If we get 500 donors OR MORE, he will donate $100,000 to the Grand Canyon BSA Council to help with programs, facilities, and operations expenses.
In addition, our generous contributor will personally match every dollar we donate as The American Legion, Department of Arizona.
To make it easy this year, instead of the reams of paper and forms we used last year, you can easily donate electronically. HOW?

3. If you are unable to donate electronically, send me a check for the amount you desire to donate by THANKSGIVING DAY (Note 24th) and I will hand deliver it to the Council offices when received (planning on November 29th—Giving Tuesday).
