How You Can Help - Fundraiser for Minnesota Communities

In this time of great tragedy in our state, particularly in Minneapolis and St. Paul, we at EDAM are reflecting on how we are best suited to help. We know that many of our members are contributing to positive change in a myriad of ways, and would like to offer a way for us to collectively support the communities hardest hit by the unrest following George Floyd’s death. As economic developers, we exist to provide the tools for communities to thrive and weather challenges together. There has never been a time when our communities have needed us more.

As part of the 2020 Summer Conference, we are holding a silent auction with 100% of the proceeds going to support three crucially important communities in the Twin Cities:

 Lake Street Council  West Broadway Business and Area Coalition  Midway Chamber of Commerce

How you can help

1) Donate a prize for the auction – items that are easy to ship or can be delivered virtually are preferred during this socially-distanced time (think virtual gift cards, one-on-one virtual coaching/mentoring/skill-sharing sessions, a pre-paid round of golf, etc.). Consider supporting local businesses with your prize donations. Send any prize commitments to by Thursday, June 11. Prize donors will be responsible for delivering the prize to the winner at the conclusion of the auction.

2) Bid on auction items June 17 – 18. Watch for separate communication about how to view and bid on auction items.

Thank you for joining with us to support rebuilding our communities!
