Only a few days remain in the matching fund for the Windom Area Foundation fund drive and it appears interest has picked up.
In the past couple of weeks, at least three dozen donations have come in, including checks ranging from $100 to $25,000.
As this week’s Citizen ad points out, donations are at $174,769.50, which is 58.3% of the $300,000 Bank Midwest matching fund goal. For every $3 a person or business gives, Bank Midwest will donate $1, up to $100,000. The matching deadline is Jan. 1.
To learn more about the Windom Area Foundation and how to donate, go to windomareafoundation.com. People can donate online, mail a check, or drop off a check with Foundation Treasurer Justin Schmit at Bank Midwest in Windom.
