This bipartisan bill could change lives. But we need YOUR help.
Project Legacy Needs Your Help
Supporting this bipartisan bill could fund $200,000 to Project Legacy's life-changing empowerment programs.
Thank you all for supporting Project Legacy thus far. Now, we need your continued support to move the bipartisan bill S.F. 3656 forward.
Since Project Legacy was founded, we’ve worked with over 300 school-aged children of color. This year, 30 of those youth are now college students who directly credit Project Legacy for their success in college and the community.
Our program works.
The bipartisan supplemental budget bill (S.F. 3656) moved through the Senate Conference Committee last week and will now include $200,000 of funding for Project Legacy. In order for this to happen, we need Governor Dayton's signature.
Here's how you can help.
Contact Governor Mark Dayton's Office here to voice your support of the bill and its funding for Project Legacy.
Why is this important?
All of our youth come from families with generational poverty. Most have family members who have been incarcerated. Almost all have experienced complex-trauma. The majority of our school children have experienced homelessness.
On average, the cost per Project Legacy participant is just $3,400 per year. The cost to incarcerate a person in the state of Minnesota is over $40,000. We all know which program has better outcomes for the individual, our families and our communities.
Please share this information with your friends, family and other supporters of Project Legacy. Thank you for your continued support!
