20/20 Vision for the Next 50 Campaign
MGS is launching the 20/20 Vision for the Next 50 campaign, with a first-year goal of $50,000. Can we do it? Absolutely – if you help!
This campaign is an ideal opportunity for you to make a real difference in the future of MGS. Your tax-deductible contribution of $50 or more will enable MGS to maintain and upgrade our new facility, support the library and its new staff, and expand learning opportunities.
Please help. Give generously to celebrate MGS’s past – but even more for the sake of its future. On behalf of the MGS Board of Directors and our fantastic volunteers, “Thank you!”
