Round Up For a Cause Fund
Following is a press release you may have seen regarding the Round Up For a Cause Grant Program. I have attached that application as well.
Our local community as well as Mayville Piggly Wiggly has started an initiative called “Round Up For a Cause” to help small locally owned businesses in Mayville, Horicon and surrounding communities. Each time you shop at Mayville Piggly Wiggly, you will have the opportunity to “Round Up” when checking out your purchase. You can “Round Up” to the next dollar or request to donate even more. Curt Schmidt, owner of Mayville Piggly Wiggly has committed to matching up to $5,000 of these “Round Up” donations. Other civic groups such as Mayville Rotary and Mayville Lions have also stepped forward to support this cause.
It was determined that the best way to distribute these funds is through a grant process. An application has been developed and a committee of 5 community leaders has been formed to review the applications. Completed applications can be mailed to (Round Up For a Cause Fund, PO Box 134, Mayville, WI 53050), e-mailed to (firstname.lastname@example.org) or dropped off at the service desk at Mayville Piggly Wiggly (1440 Horicon Street, Mayville).
The applications will be considered in the order received and as funds are available. A letter of acknowledgement and response from the committee will occur within two weeks of submission. The maximum grant award limit is $1000 and all applications are confidential.
Our local community businesses need your support to survive during this unprecedented time, so please “Round Up” when you shop. The initiative is also seeking other businesses and organizations who are willing to offer financial support. Please contact this group by e-mail (email@example.com) or reach out to Curt Schmidt at Mayville Piggly Wiggly – 920.387.3220 - to express your interest in supporting this cause.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or additional suggestions.
