Continuing its mission to invest in communities, One Community Bank is thrilled to announce a $5,000 donation to the Monona Grove Education Foundation (MGEF) CARES Campaign. The CARES Campaign focuses on children, awareness, resources, education, and stability. Funds raised in this annual campaign will be dedicated to supporting teachers and students within the Monona Grove School District.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to invest in the communities of Cottage Grove and Monona. One Community Bank is excited to help make an impact with the CARES Campaign. We look forward to this being the first of many opportunities to connect with MGEF and the Monona Grove School District,” said Dan Carey, chief commercial officer.
The Monona Grove Education Foundation provides opportunities in and out of the classroom to better educate and prepare students for life after graduation. MGEF runs five different programs within the school district, including the Pay It Forward Campaign, Monona Grove Weekend Snack Pack Program, Summer Scholarship Program, MGEF Teacher Innovation Grants, and the Rundle Starting Line Fund.
Through the end of 2023, donations to the CARES Campaign are being matched up to $25,000. For every dollar donated, Mark and Laurie Rundle will donate another dollar up to $25,000. This support will help achieve educational success and touch the lives of numerous students throughout the Monona Grove School District.
“A warm thank you to One Community Bank for their investment in MGEF,” said Jason McCutchin, president of MGEF. “Their contribution to the CARES Campaign will undoubtedly make a positive difference for students and help create a layer of excitement to their educational journey.”
