3 more states meet McKinney matching fund goal
In the last two weeks, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the District of Columbia have passed the 5K threshold. In Wisconsin volunteers raised over $3,000 in 3 days.
In order to qualify for Federal Matching Funds, a candidate must raise over $5,000 in each of 20 states, in contributions of no more than $250 per individual.
McKinney now has 10 states in the bag:California, District of Columbia, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Illinois, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
Phone banking is underway to get 10 more states past the 5K mark. The target states are: New Jersey ($4.7K), Maine ($4.3K), Florida ($3.9K), Arizona ($3.4K), Maryland ($2.2K), Massachusetts ($2.1K), Colorado (1.3K), Iowa ($1.2K), Pennsylvania ($1.1K), Connecticut ($1K), Oklahoma ($1K).
If you live in any of the above 11 states, please donate $250 to the McKinney Power to the People campaign here.
