Modern Woodmen Aids Casco Bay

Posted on Apr 16, 2010

A $1,000 matching challenge from Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial snowballed into $4,055 to support Friends of Casco Bay’s educational outreach projects.  We presented Modern Woodmen’s challenge to our members and volunteers at our Annual Meeting this fall, resulting in donations totaling $1,555. Modern Woodmen matched this amount and added  $500 to its original pledge.  A longtime supporter who had offered to make up any shortfall to the challenge, added another $1,000 to her annual gift to bring the total to over $4,000 — funding we may not have seen without Modern Woodmen’s generous matching challenge.
