Raise the Region

REMINDER - Raise the Region 2019 - March 13 - 14 - Mark Your Calendars!

CLICK on the DETAILS button for more information and to download this letter and flyer --> 

The Raise the Region fundraiser www.raisetheregion.orgExternal Link begins Wednesday, March 13th at 6:00 PM and runs through 11:59 PM Thursday, March 14th.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to make your Friends of Scouting contribution work more effectively.  For each dollar you contribute, the council will receive approximately an extra ten cents in matching contributions from the Raise the Region sponsors.

Make sure that you select Boy Scouts of America, Columbia-Montour CouncilExternal Link when making your contribution.  If you have the time and want to really make your contribution work for the council you can help us earn one of the following additional prizes:

  1. UPMC Health Plan’s Green Flag Prize – It goes the first nonprofit to receive 50 non-unique gifts (multiple contributions that are counted towards a prize) at the start of the event on March 13th at 6:00 PM.  The strategy here is to make one or more $25 contributions right at 6:00 PM.  If you are planning to give more, if you are available at 6:00 PM, help us win one of these prizes and then give more throughout the event.  (This prize is worth $1,000)
  2. Subaru’s Rise & Shine Prize – It goes to the nonprofit that receives the most unique gifts (single contributions made during that time that get credited toward a prize).  The strategy here is to make one gift of $25 during the specified time and if you are going to give more save it for another Prize between 6:00 AM and 8:00 AM on March 14th.  (This prize is worth $1,000 and we won it last year)
  3. Blaise Alexander Family Dealership Grand Prize – It goes to the organization who has the most unique gifts.  (This prize is worth $5,000)
  4. UPMC Susquehanna’s Checker Flag Prize – It goes to the nonprofit that receives the most non-unique gifts.  The strategy here is to make the most gifts of $25 during the specified time between 10:00 PM and 11:59 PM on March 14th.  (This prize is worth $1,000 and we won it last year)
  5. UPMC Susquehanna’s 100 Reason to Give Prize – On March 14th from 9:00 PM to midnight, every gift of $100 will be entered into a random drawing to award the recipient nonprofit an additional $1000 prize.

If you don’t have the time or inclination to spend additional time in front of your computer, please feel free to make one lump sum contribution any time during the fundraiser.

Thank you in advance for your ongoing support of the Columbia-Montour Council.  It is Friends of Scouting contributions from individuals like you that fund scouting in our region.

Yours in Scouting,

Paul Knox
