Major Donors

October 9, 2015 by 544foundation

The 544 Education Foundation is in the process of finding 100 Major Donors.  To be a Major Donor, donors are pledging $544/year for 5 years.  The entire $54,400 that comes in each year will be used to fund projects, programs, technology, equipment and learning materials (and more!) in/for the Fergus Falls School District.  For more information about our Major Donor Campaign, please contact Mindy at 218.998.0544, ext. 9206 or
