Big news. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation, via Patronicity.com, has given Houghton MI Skatepark the opportunity to participate in a campaign to receive a $50,000 match.
The match comes in the form of a crowdfunding campaign. If you donate to Houghton MI Skatepark from now through June 9th, the MEDC will match your donation, but ONLY if we reach our fundraising goal of $50,000. If we raise $49,000, we don't receive a dollar in matching funds. If we reach the goal, phase one funding for the skatepark will be finished in time for construction this summer/fall.
If you have considered donating to the skatepark, but haven't donated yet, NOW is the time. FYI, you don't only need to donate via Patronicity. All donations will count toward the match, including purchases made at our 2nd annual art auction this Thursday. Please follow us on Facebook for up-to-date news and share this link with your friends!
