Friends of Mascoma Foundation Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement - Pledges to Support Mascoma Schools

PRESS RELEASE: ENFIELD, NH - FRIENDS OF MASCOMA FOUNDATION (FOM) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. FOM is currently running two campaigns to support our schools:


Want to make a *sound* investment? Donate toward the creation of the Mascoma Valley Regional School District elementary schools instrument bank!

Your donation will give great returns! Students who study music in school are better students for life! Research has consistently shown that learning music is linked with higher achievement and skill development in other subjects. A gift of music is a gift of an enhanced educational experience.

An anonymous donor has pledged a dollar-for-dollar matching donation up to $5000.00! With this matching donation, your donation of $1.00 becomes $2.00, $10.00 becomes $20.00, $100.00 becomes $200.00 and so on. Right now we are 26% of the way toward receiving our match -- every dollar counts!

This matching donation campaign will run from
November 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015 ONLY!

The Take a Seat Campaign #TAKEASEAT

Would you like to honor your family, memorialize a loved one, friend or teacher, pay tribute to an individual, commemorate a special date, or honor your business? You can do this by purchasing a polished metal nameplate affixed to one aisle arm of an auditorium seat in the soon to be renovated high school. Your purchase of a nameplate helps insure the continued support of Friends of Mascoma to raise and appropriate funds to foster educational advancements within the MVRSD.

There will be approximately 500 seats available in three different price levels.

Nameplates are available until sold out.

Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in meaningful ways to the charities and causes they support. 

Please consider including Friends of Mascoma in your giving plans this holiday season.

Donations may be made by check payable to: Friends of Mascoma Foundation, 340 Grafton Pond Road, Enfield, NH 03748 or online at Donations under $20.00 must be sent via mail.
