24 hours of giving

May 6th, 2014:

If you live in St. Louis, you may have heard about Give STL Day on the news, radio, Facebook, or Twitter! And even if you aren’t in St. Louis, you can still be involved in this event! Give STL Day is a partnership between the Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation and more than 500 local nonprofits (including MTC!) where hundreds (if not thousands) of donors from our community and beyond will come together on a single day, May 6th, to raise significant funds for local needs.

During this 24-hour day of local giving, you can make an online donation to More Than Carpentry here. By giving on May 6, you not only help us raise essential support for our ministry, but you might also win Cardinal’s tickets in several drawings throughout the day.

Give STL Day also includes six “Power Hours” (at 8am, 10 am, 12 pm, 2 pm, 5 pm, and 8 pm). Every gift given during a Power Hour will be matched by sponsors, doubling the impact of your donation!

We’re excited to be involved in this event and hope to see it benefit the entire St. Louis community. If you are able, please mark your calendars and plan to make a donation on May 6. Let’s see what we can do in a day!


Taylor Community Consulting Team PhotoMTC awarded a grant!

As a result of receiving a grant through the Taylor Community Consulting Program at Washington University’s Olin Business School, we have this awesome group of Business students working with us to develop a Strategic Plan to help us move forward as an organization!

They are making their final presentation to MTC Staff & Board on Wednesday, April 30th at 9:30am. Thank you students!

(If you’re interested in attending the presentation, contact us & we’ll give you more information!)


Trivia Fundraiser: over $2700 raised!

For those who attended, sponsored, and made donations towards this event, here’s a big “Thank-You!”. Your involvement was by no means trivial. You are an integral part of the MTC mission, including helping us raise over $2700 (including 2 new monthly donors!) to continue partnering with our neighbors in Wellston!

Here’s the winning team (Marvin dropped in for the event too!):
