What if your charitable giving could stretch further despite the inflation that is pushing up your grocery, gas and business bills?
One way to do that is by supporting the Frank Beckmann Center for Journalism at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. Every dollar you donate to the Beckmann Center this year will be matched, dollar for dollar, through a $3 million challenge grant sponsored by a generous donor.
That means that your giving and your impact will go further.
Your gift of $50 will generate $100 toward keeping people informed about what is going on in Lansing. A gift of $500 will provide $1,000 for work to ensure that government turns over public documents that rightfully belong to the people.
A gift of $1,000 would mean $2,000 for new efforts like our monthly radio show, “Mackinac On Michigan,” airing the third Tuesday of each month on WJR-AM 760 in Detroit.
Our immediate goal is to raise $1 million for the Beckmann Center in 2022, which will open the door to an additional $2 million in matching funds. We already have raised more than $975,000 toward this target.
Frank Beckmann understood that keeping citizens informed and engaged is essential to democracy, and never more than in difficult economic and political times like today.
If you want to maximize your charitable and public policy impact this year, please consider a donation to the Frank Beckmann Center for Journalism. Together, we will hold our government officials accountable to the people.
