MNWT Foundation

What the MNWT Foundation can do for US.

#1 Chapter Grants. Do you have a community project that your chapter would like to fund, but lack money? Consider applying for a Chapter Grant. Applications can be found on the Foundation page of the website.

#2 Outstanding Awards. The MNWT Foundation is pleased to fund the Outstanding Young Adult Scholarships and Women Who Impact Awards given at Winter State each year. These monetary awards are made possible through fundraising and the generous donations from chapters, districts and members.

#3 Cheryl L. Anderson Scholarship. Cheryl was a member of the Anoka Women of Today for 9 years. She served her chapter and the state organization in many positions including President of the Key Women Club. She was an art teacher and unfortunately passed away in 1989.

#4 Straight River Scholarship. This scholarship is funded by the Straight River Women of Today. Their chapter consists of members who have physical and developmental challenges. They run many of the same fundraising projects as other chapters do. This scholarship is for the members who are furthering their education in an area to help those who are physically or mentally challenged.

A February Note from President Carrie

“Being kind does not have to cost a thing. Words are free, smiles are free, actions are free.”. – theodysseyonline.com This past Friday as I was getting ready for convention, I had to make a stop and change roles from adult leader to Girl Scout leader. I was meeting with my coleader to go over stuff for our Monday meeting. As I was leaving Caribou; rushed because I had other things to finish up, a woman approached me. At first, I couldn’t understand her, then she took a breath and calmed down. I learned she was driving in from Chicago with her little girl, having just left an abusive relationship and was trying to get to Bloomington, but made a wrong turn and was now almost out of gas. Did I have any money to spare? Money to spare? I don’t work, so any funny money I get I covet and horde away (yet I still don’t seem to spend it on me!). I had money on me for convention, but I couldn’t whip that out in front of her. I got nervous, my co leader had bolted to her car. It was just me…what could I do? So, I asked her to hold on a minute, and walked to my car. At least I felt a bit safer there as I was looking around, it was 10am in the Walgreens parking lot, cars and people everywhere. She followed, but never made a move towards my car. I dug a ten-dollar bill out of my small horde and walked it back to her. She almost started crying and gave me a hug…I thought she wasn’t going to let go! I started thinking about the…What if’s. What if that had been me? Would I have the courage to go up to a complete stranger and ask for help? I can barely talk to people I know in public situations. This small act of kindness made a difference to her. I wished her well and she went on her way. Our paths will probably not pass again. While my act of kindness did cost me ten-dollars, it doesn’t always have to. Remember to be kind, the world seems to be lacking this now days. Share a smile, a kind word; It needs to start somewhere, and I’m glad to be part of the kindness movement! I hope you have a “kind” day and always are courageous!

President Carrie
