PACKER POINT LEADER STEPS UP TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Jan 2, 2023 | Uncategorized

Menominee, MI – Green Bay Packers’ all-time leading scorer Mason Crosby gave the M&M Area Community Foundation (MMACF) a kickstart for 2023!  Mason states his support for the Future Fund children’s savings program in a video presentation.  Crosby articulates the value of investing in a winning future for area children. 

Crosby’s remarks can be viewed on the Foundation’s website at https://www.mmacf.org/future-fund/. The Community Foundation was the first to organize children’s savings accounts in Wisconsin and is currently one of only two such programs in Wisconsin.

Stats show children with a dedicated savings account of $500, or less, are three times more likely to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education or training.

This is the fourth year in which kindergarten students across Marinette and Menominee Counties will have a $50 deposit-only savings account established for them by the Foundation. Support for students does not end with kindergarten – each year until graduation the MMACF adds more money to every child’s account. Students in both first and second grade receive a $5 incentive with the amount increased to $10 for third grade.

Mason Crosby encourages community donations for the growth and expansion of the Future Fund program. For more information on how to give back to our communities via the Future Fund, please contact the MMACF at 906-864-3599. Checks for this Fund may be mailed to the Foundation at 1110 10th Avenue, Suite L-1, Menominee, MI 49858, or made online at www.mmacf.org.
