$9,400 to Durand Backpack Program!

After our 4th 100+ Women meeting we’ve made a impact in our community with over $33,000 in donations! 

We heard from three deserving groups during our 4th meeting on March 15, 2018: I Cancer Vive, Durand Backpack Program and Live Healthy Shiawassee. 

The Durand Backpack Program won the majority vote and will receive $9,400 from our group!

$9,000 to Durand Railroaders FIRST Robotics Team!

Three area non-profits presented to our group on September 21, 2017: DMS English, Language & Arts, Durand Robotics and Durand Model Railroad.

The recipient of our collective donation of $9,000 is the Durand Robotics Team. We hope others will put their name in the basket at our next meeting on March 15th.

After our third meeting we’ve donated $24,000 LOCALLY to worthy organizations!

 

$8,700 To Durand Union Station!

Three area non-profits presented to our group on March 23, 2017: Durand Robotics, Durand Union Station-Michigan Railroad History Museum and Live Healthy Shiawassee.

The recipient of our collective donation of $8,700 is Durand Union Station. We enjoyed learning about the Durand Robotics Team and Live Healthy Shiawassee and hope they will put their name in at our next meeting on September 21st.

$6,300 to Durand Educational Foundation!

The three presenters at our first meeting on September 22nd, 2016 were: Durand Educational Foundation, Durand Robotics Team, and Durand Union Station. We heard about three great organizations within our community!

The nominations were tallied and the majority vote went to the Durand Educational Foundation. The Foundation was formed in 2013 and operates independent of the school district. They offer mini grants to staff and volunteers who desire funding for unique educational experiences for Durand students. They received our collective donation of $6,300!
 
A Durand Alum offered a $10,000 donation to the Foundation if they could raise matching funds in 2016 — before our meeting they had raised $5,000. Our $6,300 donation put them over the top and they received the full $10,000 from the Alum.
