If you’re like us, you know Give to the Max Day – the statewide online giving day when Minnesotans showcase our amazing generosity – is upon us.
You may not know that the Minnesota Homeownership Center is participating in Give to the Max Day as part of our effort to make Smart Choices and Vibrant Communities a reality for all Minnesota families. But what does that mean, exactly, and why should you consider us among your giving choices tomorrow?
Smart Choices means homebuyers are empowered with the information they need to buy when they are ready, and on terms that are in their best interest. The Center’s statewide network provides homebuyer education and counseling to help homebuyers understand what they can afford and how they can best prepare for homeownership. Our advisors connect buyers with loan and down payment programs that will be sustainable in the long-term, and provide free, unbiased guidance at every step of the home buying process.
We also know that smart, sustainable homeownership creates Vibrant Communities where everyone thrives. We are working every day to make the proven benefits of homeownership real for everyone: benefits like improved health, better educational outcomes and stronger financial security.
We know you’re getting zillions of emails and tweets asking for your gift, but we hope you’ll consider a small donation to the Minnesota Homeownership Center, and here’s why:
Our counseling and education programs have helped 200,000 households purchase and retain their homes.
We hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about the Center’s work by reading some other blog posts or exploring the resources on our website.
